Landscape in Oils – New!
Create compelling landscapes in a series of paintings. Each week, we’ll focus on a painting technique and color. We’ll also follow themes like autumn, winter, water scenes, architecture and regional scenes. You’ll practice layout and composition, then learn to use light and color to create depth. Use photo references and thumbnail sketches. Learn to create atmosphere and suggest time of day and weather. We’ll cover maximizing lost and found edges, and learn how to use aerial and chromatic perspectives. Other techniques we’ll cover include: quick strokes, slow lines, scumbling and using a brush or palette knife. Discussions cover traditional and modern painters as well as painting critiques. You’ll finish the class with several small paintings. Use personal photographic reference and photos provided by the instructor. Note: This class will include techniques in alla prima painting and indirect oil painting.
