Engaging Colors and Strong Value Patterns…Keys to success in Oil Landscapes!

Color is the most personal and expressive of all elements in a landscape. Artists know that applying color wheel knowledge is “a must” to achieving the feelings of time and place in a landscape painting. This class will explore ways to reap the benefits of good color choices for landscapes, including smart use of color opposites and color harmonies to get your viewer’s attention. Exploring color relationships built on strong value structures and shapes will allow the painter to capture his/her “responses to nature” on canvas. Personalized instruction and helpful critiques will be provided to accommodate each student’s painting style. Students should bring their own landscape photos with which they have a strong personal connection. www.davidflitner.com
