Create Moving Atmosphere in the Landscape

Create Moving Atmosphere in the Landscape

Light and atmospheric forces act upon the landscape to create a story, and it’s up to you as the artist to decide how to tell it. Join award-winning artist Kathleen Hudson as she reveals how she infuses her landscapes with atmosphere. Students will learn how to see subtle color and value shifts that give their paintings depth. They will also learn tools for effective self-critique so they can strengthen their own work at each stage of progress. Hudson will bring examples of her preparatory sketches and color studies so students can thumb through those in person. Each morning will feature a presentation and demonstration, and then exercises for students focusing on value and composition. Afternoons will be devoted to one-on-one instruction. Each student’s studies during the first three days will lead to a finished (or at least near-finished!) studio landscape painting by the final day. Students are encouraged to email several landscape painting examples beforehand and list some specific things they would like to work on. Tuition includes 40-page workshop handbook. www.kathleenbhudson.com
