Developing Dramatic Landscape Paintings
Colorful and light-filled paintings will be the goal in this class! An artist’s connection to the scene is very important so students are encouraged to bring their own inspirational landscape photos to paint from. In class students will explore color and compositional strategies to simplify their painting process, pull their paintings together, and add just the right touch of drama through light and shadow. A painting’s success rests on the artist’s knowledge and handling of the principles beneath the surface details. Color schemes, design structure, light, depth, and atmosphere will be in focus as the instructor presents useful information through discussion and demonstration. Personalized instruction and helpful critiques will be provided to accommodate each student’s painting style. Students will take away new insights to add to their artists’ tool box!
