ROCKS, BOULDERS & PEBBLES: the “bedrock” of landscape painting. Creating the shapes and depth of individual rocks and learning to combine many rocks and pebbles into a single collective shape that says “rocks” without detailing each one is crucial to successful landscape painting. This workshop will focus on the challenge of painting a landscape in which rocks, boulders and pebbles are a significant feature. A photo will be provided for student use but they are always welcome and encouraged to paint from their own reference material. There will be demonstrations of techniques suitable for the subject, exercises, ongoing critique and lots of painting time. Class time will be structured, yet open enough to accommodate the artistic spirit within every attendee. All levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. The only prerequisite is an attitude of joy in the act of painting!
