6 Week Landscape Painting Class
By popular demand, I am offering a class focused on my newest love: Painting landscapes and skyscapes!
Establish Depth First
We'll begin by learning how to establish the feeling of distance between different landmasses before adding texture and detail. This will be balanced by adding form to select features in the painting through the use of light logic and form painting.
Explore Varied Terrain
Principles of atmospheric perspective apply not just to green foliage, but also to rock, desert, cityscapes: Anywhere that you can see distance! Photos from a large variety of landscapes will be available as reference.
Revel in the Magic of Skies
We'll cover the way hues shift in the open sky at various times of day, as well as how to paint clouds with convincing volume and luminosity. Often this is just an afterthought in landscape painting, but we'll cover it as a primary topic.
Is this course good for beginners?
YES! While this course is not as comprehensive as Foundations of Oil Painting, it is structured to begin with basic concepts before progressing to more challenging techniques.
