Landscape Painting Online Art Course

Tutored by Alan Dedman BA, RAS, PGCE and Paul Weaver

The Landscape Painting Course is a Diploma Course.  

The expected duration of this course is approximately 1 year although the college allows students up to two years to complete their studies. This course is suitable for all students.

Capture sweeping panoramas and stunning landscapes in breath-taking detail with the Landscape Painting Diploma Course from London Art College. Learn how to bring depth, colour and character to your work and discover where you sit within your landscape. With practical advice and tutorials on framing and composing your paintings, you can develop a depth to your landscapes that will captivate your audience.  If you’ve ever struggled with light and shadow, or wondered how to handle the sun as it races across the sky, this is the course for you.

Course subjects include:

  • Bringing mood and emotion into the scene
  • Recognising the Lie of the Land
  • Mastering seascapes and mountains
  • Watercolours and oils
  • Urban settings
  • Animals at a distance
  • Perspective and depth
  • Fantasy landscapes and bringing imagination to the fore
  • And more

As one of the most comprehensive written courses of its kind, you’ll get a wealth of material and expert tuition from the moment you begin. You’ll also have an opportunity to share your work with other students online and get feedback on your progress as you master each technique - all while working around your other commitments from the comfort of your own home.
Whether you’re painting landscapes for the first time or you’re keen to bring more skill to your work, this diploma is the perfect place to start.

This course does not teach you how to use the media or how to draw.

Students are able to upload their artwork to the 'The Art Room' on our website. Each student is given a unique username and password on enrolment for their own private section in The Art Room.

Students can upload their artwork for the tutor to collect and critique. The tutor will then upload feedback for the student to download. If you do not have facilities to upload your artwork, you can mail your artwork to the tutors centre and receive your artwork back with your critique. It is essential you label all packages/artwork with your student number.

All our courses are written to be complete in themselves. However we realise that students may appreciate being able to get clarification about various things as they work through their programme as well wanting reassurance that they are putting techniques into practice effectively. The tutors provide the technical support to deal with relevant queries.

Most courses have their own dedicated Tutor. The tutor keeps the course up to date and relevant to today's students. They are available to the individual student for advice and encouragement. Each course has regular exercises and assignments that are constructed in such a way as to give the student the opportunity to practice the techniques learnt on the course and to test themselves as they go along. The student is encouraged to submit the assignment work to the college for the tutor to critique.

The student's work will be returned together with the tutor's personal critique. On many courses the assignment work may be suitable for inclusion in a student's Portfolio of Work that could be very useful later. The college will use the assignments submitted as the basis for any award of a letter, certificate or diploma.

Below are a few images from the course.

I thoroughly enjoyed the landscape painting course with Alan Dedman. The course challenged me to try techniques and approaches I hadn't attempted before, which took me out of my comfort zone and as a result, I felt this helped me to develop my skills in a positive way.
Alan's feedback and advice were always positive and constructive. I particularly appreciated his advice to make my paintings more colourful, to set them at a particular time of day and to include narrative content. I feel that my work has progressed as a result of following his advice.
The course content and the way it is presented is clear and easy to follow. I found the website easy to use and the method of submitting work is very straight forward. I found that the course gave me focus, it was something to aim for and work towards and it was a good way of dealing with the lockdown situations we have found ourselves in. Now that I have finished the course, I will certainly miss it!
I would definitely recommend the landscape painting course and the London Art College to others.

A very organised and helpful course. Alan Dedman gave me constructive and honest critique when he viewed my work which I found invaluable. LAC online course highly recommended.

I was really happy with this course for many reasons. One was the diversity of the assignments, often broaching subjects I would never have done alone. It pushed me out of my comfort zone and taught me to think and see certain aspects of landscape painting from a very different perspective.
