    The natural world is full of awe inspiring environments, and there are few experiences more exciting than capturing a sense of these places through paint. In this two day workshop we will explore the basic principles of landscape painting, including composition, value, depth, and color. We’ll work from a library of reference photos the instructor has gathered while exploring the American West, and students are also welcome to bring their own. Day 1 will be spent painting in monochrome and covering fundamentals such as light, value, depth, and composition. On Day 2, we’ll paint colorful scenes using a split primary palette, and learn to record some of the subtleties of nature while altering what we see to create compelling images. This class will also touch on essential techniques of oil painting, such as paint application, edge control, and color mixing, though students are welcome to work in their painting medium of choice. All levels of experience are welcome. Maximum of 8 students.

    *To reserve your place in any class, payment must be received at the time of registration.
