"Painting: Simplify the Landscape"
June 21-26, 2020
 

How do we select places to paint? How do we compose and adjust relationships in the landscape to fit our ideas of an invented reality? We will begin drawing from direct observation, composing quick sketches to simplify the landscape. We will discuss perspective, scale shifts, light source, value and space – all integral concepts to composing a compelling drawing. Paintings will be made later in the day, working from the same location. The light will change but the overall composition will remain. The personal approach of each student will infuse paintings that are invented and abstracted representations of the landscape. Classroom discussions will focus on other landscape painters who use a variety of ideas around color and abstraction in their work.
