We will work from photographs in preparation for direct observation to cover concepts in landscape with emphasis on an in-the-field approach to landscape as subject matter. In addition to producing finished paintings, discuss this genre and the themes often illustrated in it, including the concept of place, scale, the nature of light, and the balance of man and nature. Work indoors from your studio. Participants may choose oil, acrylic or pastel for their medium. Topics include proper grounds (surfaces) for oil paint, as well as materials, mediums and techniques for efficient use of time. How to use a loose drawing to form a strong composition and making color studies is also covered. Discussions include choosing a location, reading the weather, reading the light and color mixing for landscape. This course is intended anyone with previous experience in basic drawing and painting.
