Reserve your spot NOW for $75! The remaining $155 will be due the first day of class.

(NOTE: Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, classes may change. An online format will be used in the event a class gets cancelled and your $75 deposit will be used to pay for the entire online class.) 

Days 1 & 2: The Source of Light and how to portray volume and perspective.

 We will practice blending colors and adjusting values with acrylic paint.  This will be done on basic elements of a landscape, such as trees, bushes, rocks, water, hills and mountains etc.  Aerial perspective and linear perspective and integrating a light source will help you bring life to your landscape.  Together we will each  create a small  landscape painting. Photos will be provided to practice from.

Days 3 & 4 – Create your own Landscape.
We will compose and paint a landscape with some architecture on a larger canvas or watercolor paper.

Design and build a depth of field for your painting, from your photographs. You will learn how to select a color scheme to pull your painting together in a unique way.  I will bring photocopies of the same subject matter I’m working on if you want to paint the same subject. This can be done on a larger canvas…at least 16” x 20” or larger.
