DIY Beach Art with Lessons on Finding Your Art Style

I love decorating with beach and ocean art! It gives a space a relaxing-vacation vibe. I suppose that's why I paint beach art regularly and decorate with it in my own home.

Of course, you can make your own art to display in your home, office, or rental space as well. It can save you dollars, but more importantly it creates a space that has something made by you, and that makes it extra special.

Now you can enjoy my new Beach Art Painting Workshop, and learn how to paint some amazing beach art for your own home. The inspiration for this painting workshop comes from one of the most famous beach vacation destinations in the world, the Bahamas!

​The sandy beaches, turquoise ocean water, and the animals featured in my beach painting workshop take us to this wonderful destination to both explore and relax. Then, you can display it in your favorite place so you can feel the joy it brings to you, often.

Get your Beach Painting Workshop

I will be your painting buddy (guide) to make sure you love the results. I have made you four beach themed painting lessons with full real-time video tutorials, step-by-step instructions, reference photos and traceable templates to make it easy for you to follow along. Plus the lessons will help you mix and match the colors using only a few basic paint colors. I keep the supplies you need simple, so you can get started faster. (Get my recommended supplies here)

In each lesson I provide a reference photo and traceable to help you, so that you don't need advanced drawing skills. You can choose the size and surface you want to paint on so it fits your space the way you want it to. If you want to paint on a larger surface than I do, you just need to use a projector or blow up the painting on your computer and print it in sections. Keep in mind when you paint larger, you will need larger brushes that are similar to the shapes I list in the lesson.

All you need to do is gather the supplies and relax while you follow along for the best results. Choose the art piece you want to paint with me from my Beach Painting Workshop below.

Also as a bonus, I provide an art lesson with each painting that will help you become a better artist. In these lessons I teach you about art styles to inspire you as well as expand your options as an artist.

It's important for artists to know what the different art styles are so they can discover what they enjoy painting and be able to describe their work. Artists can build upon previous knowledge, get inspired, and discover new ways of making art to express themselves. There are so many art styles out there and artists keep introducing more to the world. Will yours be next?

The more you learn and explore, the more you feed your inspiration and discover your own personal preferences. It's the path to discovering your own unique art style.

I'm happy you will be joining me on this journey of discovery! Enjoy the lessons.
