"Expressive Paint – exploring the landscape with David Skinner"
October 13-15, 2017

The emphasis of this workshop is to help students develop an expressive touch with paint and to loosen up their brushwork. The landscape is a very good vehicle for exploring paint, and acrylic paints are very forgiving when trying to paint expressively. The students will work from photographs, either their own or from photos I will provide. Each day will begin with a demo in which David discuss topics as value, design, color, brushwork, and line. At the end of each day, we will have a class dialogue about each other’s work, pointing out what works, what doesn’t and how to improve. It’s a lot of fun and hopefully, will help make students better painters!
