Landscape Painting

Regular price $900.00 $0.00

Starting June 20, 2022 

In this 10 week course we will be painting using a limited palette of primary colors and learning to create subtle colors by mixing.

Beginning with how to set up and use your palette, creating chromatic grays and value studies to mixing colors, lessons will include general procedures for laying in areas of color and building upon them, using simple planes to create space, light and dark patterns, atmospheric perspective, contrast between simple and complex areas, warm and cool color contrasts, glazing and using composition to lead the eye. Painting from drawings and photo reference will also be included.

Weekly lessons and critiques.

No prior painting experience required. This course is appropriate for beginners as well as experienced painters.
