Landscape Painting in the Studio

Landscape Painting in the Studio

During this five-day workshop, the time will be spent working on a single studio painting based on the student’s photographs. Calvin will begin with a demonstration and spend the remaining time with each student throughout the rest of the day. It is recommended for students to bring a laptop or tablet for viewing their reference photos or bring actual prints. Students will learn to plan an effective composition and to better see and use warm and cool colors in a landscape. Calvin will teach students how to use hard and soft edges to create space in a painting and how to simplify the subject matter through the use of basic design, value, color, and drawing skills. Students will learn the reasons for using different paint surface textures and brushstroke directions and how to get the best possible results in a short time. www.calvinliangfineart.com
