Painting the Quality of Light in Oil Landscapes

Painting the Quality of Light in Oil Landscapes

Bring life to your landscape paintings through a dynamic presence of light! The goal of this class is to learn to create a luminous sense of light that gradually moves across the canvas, while still enveloping the entire scene in the feeling of light. Learn how a subject’s form can come alive through structuring light and shadow families. This workshop has a strong emphasis on developing a foundation of practical and useful techniques to structure the light and dark values in landscapes. With a focus on emphasizing the quality of light, palette and color mixing strategies will be included to assure a harmonious and unified painting. Discussions, demonstrations, and helpful visual displays are utilized. Personalized instruction is also given throughout the class to students at their individual skill levels. Students should bring their own landscape photographs for reference. www.davidflitner.com
