Matt Smith Workshop

In this three-day workshop, students will work on using field studies and other reference materials to create studio landscape paintings. The class will start with an abbreviated lecture on the fundamentals of sound painting, including a discussion of the importance of drawing, value, design, and color. Students will also focus on seeing in terms of mass and form rather than detail and line. From these fundamentals, students will proceed to work on their own studio landscape paintings. Students should bring reference materials such as plein air sketches, field studies, and photographs.
