Landscape Composition – Acrylic, Oil, Pastel or Watercolor
Monday 1:30 – 4:00
Learn how, when and where to adjust the many elements of scale, overlap and alignment in your compositions to enhance your landscape painting. You will then use your photo references to apply what you’ve learn to paint your landscape painting. Bring a 9 x 12 or larger sketch book to draw and note the composition designs that you will learn. Open to all media so bring your normal supplies for your primary medium of choice.
Tuesday, 9:00 – 12:00
Each session focuses on a different emphasis of color. Beginning Color teaches you the basics with an emphasis of mixing predictable colors. Advance Color delves into the finer points of mixing and placement of color. Choosing a Palette helps you to decide which palette is best for different imagery.
Sess 4: Choosing a Color Palette: Apr 16
Oils OR Pastels
Tuesday, 1:30 – 4:00
You can choose either medium because the process and layering is similar in thinking. You can use water-based or regular oils OR chalk pastels but check the supplies to see what is needed for each. There will be specific topic of focus for each class session.
