What you’ll learn

  • You’ll learn time honored painting techniques, combined with contemporary approaches I’ve adapted by masters like Peter Paul Rubens, Leonardo Da Vinci and William Adolphe Bougereau, as well as modern masters like Chuck Close and Gottfried Helenwein and lighting techniques developed by Rebrandt Van Rijn.
  • In my years of teaching, I’ve found that even college students either have gaps in knowledge, or bad habits that are holding them back. So this course starts at the ground and builds every student up from there, to make sure you have a solid foundation to grow from.
  • Lesson 1 is designed to familiarize you with the terminologies I’ll be using throughout the rest of the course and get you acquainted with the concept of a 5 and 10 value greyscale, cleaners and brush techniques-including what each brush is designed to do, how to hold them correctly, positioning and the specific motion to execute proper blending techniques.
  • You’ll learn the science behind different materials like acrylic mediums, what they do and how to use them correctly to make painting easier and your colors more vibrant!
  • Next, you’ll complete 2 unique exercises that I’ve designed to determine what your strengths and weaknesses are and to show me if you have any bad habits that need to be corrected. These exercises are also designed to begin teaching you the core fundamentals of acrylic painting. I’ve developed these exercises over years of teaching, to help me identify and coach you through fixing a bad habit as quickly and easily as possible, before moving on to more complex concepts and images.
  • You’ll do your first painting using the new techniques, based on a simple image that I’ll supply you.
  • You’ll learn an approach to doing a drawing specifically for a painting, an easy system to get your drawing right every time and I’ll walk you through drawing and painting it to photorealistic perfection!
  • You’ll learn how to do an underpainting and how to paint in layers, to achieve realism. I’ll teach you shading and blending techniques that will give you better gradients, every time!
  • You’ll paint a still life of an old chrome kettle from a hi res photograph I’ll supply you.
  • This lesson is designed to teach you how to handle textures, like metal, scratches, bright highlights and reflective surfaces, as well as atmosphere without the added factor of color. This will prepare you to handle more complex images that you’ll encounter in the next lessons.
  • You’ll learn visualization and simplification techniques that I’ve developed to make painting easy for anyone.
  • Next, I’ll teach you to use color in a painting and begin learning basic color theory concepts and compositions.
  • I’ll show you how to use a new kind of color mixing technique, that will make mixing any color imaginable easy- and make sure you never get muddy colors again!
  • You’ll learn the difference between chroma, color and values and how to control them, as well as how to manage a combination of colors on one palette.
  • Next, you’ll paint a still life of a grapefruit, based on a hi-res photograph I’ll supply you. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to compose complex color schemes in your paintings.
  • You’ll learn how to compartmentalize images to simplify them and make painting anything easier!
  • I’ll teach you how to manage a controlled color palette with over 5 color scales on it and insure that your paintings are always bright and vibrant!
  • Next, you’ll paint a portrait. You’ll learn a method to mixing a perfect skin tone, every time and the rules to portrait painting.
  • You’ll get an in-depth lesson on painting detail and how to easily add incredible detail to a painting without needing extreme patients.
  • I’ll show you tricks to painting eyes and hair.
  • I’ll explain techniques to draw a viewers attention to desired focal points in your paintings.
  • You’ll learn how to varnish a painting and give it a beautiful, glossy, finished look.

  1. Luis Brito

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

  3. Jiaqing Fan

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.


  9. Chendaniel

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
