A studio landscape workshop for artists working in oils. Each morning will feature a presentation, full demo, and exercises for students focusing on value and composition. Afternoons will be devoted to one-on-one instruction. Each student’s in-depth study the first afternoon will lead to a finished (or at least near-finished!) studio landscape painting by the final day.

Points of study will include:
• Seeing as an artist: painting light rather than objects
• Planning your painting: envisioning your painting, using varied reference material, honing value and design, doing color studies
• Stages of studio painting: drawing, block-in, color mixing, approaches to working a larger painting, refining texture & edges, tools for self-critique
• Experimentation: exercises you can do at home to continue your growth as an artist

One-on-one instruction will be individually tailored. Students are encouraged to email several landscape painting examples beforehand and list some specific things they would like to work on.

Attendance fee includes spiral-bound workshop book.
