"Fundamentals of Landscape Painting"
July 7-9, 2022
 

Learning to paint is all about seeing. Through direct observation we see shapes, colors and texture. Once we learn to recognize these observations (actually see what we are looking at) we can begin to emulate these forms in a more accurate way. Representational painting focuses on seeing, i.e. What color is it? How light - how dark? What size is it? Students will learn to answer these basic questions and turn those answers into brush marks, taking your work to the next level. Be ready to work and learn and have fun doing it!

"Keys to Color Choices in Landscape Painting"
July 18-20, 2022
 

To create a successful landscape painting, artists factor in lots of information, both about the scene and their painting goals. Good color choices are central to that mix! In this class, students will learn how to select the color groups that best represent the location, season, and time of day, but also the feelings they want to express in their landscape painting. Ways to orchestrate and build various harmonies that pull the colors together will be explored to help students achieve their paintings’ color goals. Come get inspired with practical and efficient strategies that are easily applied and make the painting experience more comfortable and enjoyable. David demonstrates in oils, but acrylic painters are welcome.
