"Painting the Landscape in Oil"
November 15-17, 2018
 

Painting is always about controlling the viewer’s eye. Good composition and drawing is paramount to this effort. Students will focus on considering composition before the painting is started as well as the four planes of a landscape and inherent values. The workshop will be held indoors, and we will paint from resource photos. Perry Austin will demonstrate each day during the workshop. Students will create several studies of their own during the workshop that can be used for future reference or to create their own studio paintings. Other subjects will include using the camera to compose reference materials, color studies, en plein air studies and variations in composition. Skill Level: Open to all levels of students.
