Painting Intensive: Landscapes from Photographs in Oil or Acrylic

This event is no longer on sale.

Saturday February 26

9:00 AM  –  2:00 PM

Working in oil or acrylic 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.
