Oil Painting: Landscapes from Photographs
Tuesdays, November 14 – December 12 / 6 – 9 pm
Working in oil paint, students will explore value divisions in landscapes and the basics of brush sketching and massing. With these skills students will learn how to relate color to value and will gain a better understanding of identifying spatial cues in a landscape. Using foundational skills students can then explore under-painting, glazing and dry-brushing techniques.
