Painting Water in the Landscape
This online class begins on October 2nd at 1pm via ZOOM. The class meets for eight consecutive Fridays.
As you create your own landscape painting, you will learn...
- The basics of composition
- Tools for drawing with accurate proportion
- To use value to model light and shadow
- To use a limited palette to mix the natural colors you see in the landscape
- To use glazes to create the illusion of transparent water
The class is accessible for beginners yet a challenge for more accomplished painters. You may choose to use your own reference picture or paint from the one I provide. You will receive a link each week to a video lesson that you can watch anytime, and the class will meet via ZOOM for eight Fridays, beginning October 2nd at 1pm for guidance, encouragement, and support. You can download the free ZOOM software for your computer, tablet or phone here.
Cost for the eight sessions is $80. In addition, you will need the following materials:
- Canvas or gessoed panel to paint on
