Learn how to focus on the essential elements of the landscape. This class will offer starting techniques, how to simplify shapes into masses, mixing a palette with warm and cool color, creating atmospheric perspective, and composition.
After a sketchbook drawing done outdoors outside of class, we will use either oil pastels or oil paints. Please bring your own photos to work from, a sketchpad and #6B pencil, and basic set of 15 or more oil pastels to the first class.
If you intend to oil paint, bring the supplies you have. A broader materials list will be provided in the first class,
Demonstrations will cover both mediums along with individual attention.
