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.
You have a choice of using 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, and two sheets of grey Canson Mi Tiente paper (or smaller tablet with choices of colors).
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.
