Mastering the Elements of the Landscape – Water, Lakes & Streams in Oils

Tuesdays, April 7 -28
10 am – noon

CANCELED: In order to paint the landscape well, the artist must master the various elements of it. This class will focus on the painting a variety of water, lakes and streams – how things reflect on still surfaces as well as the many aspects of moving water. Students who have taken the Landscape Basics class will benefit, but it is not a prerequisite. Students will learn how to paint clear water, how to depict shadows across water as well as reflections. We will also be covering moving water and falling water too. Students will discover why properly painted water can add interest and drama to an otherwise ordinary scene.
