ENJOY LEARNING TECHNIQUES FOR PAINTING A LANDSCAPE IN SOME OF ITS MANY AND VARIED FORMS
If you have wanted to learn to paint nature well, in this course you will learn some special techniques that will help to make your landscapes come to life. We will work step by step together each day with demonstration to achieve a painting working on some of the many of the different guises that the landscape can take on: A Waterfall – a Mountain Scene with Mist: A bush track and your own choice of subject.
Painting the landscape is an interesting and endlessly changing subject to paint. It can be a subject on its own or part of another painting.
The landscape has universal appeal and a magical quality that presents in many ways. This course will help you learn techniques to paint distinctive and realistic landscapes.
The workshop will aim to achieve at least 4 paintings during the week – your own subject on the last day - tips on keeping colours clean, some basic composition and colour mixing, light and mood. I am happy to work at your own pace as an individual.
Colour photos to work from and handouts will be provided – except for the day when you need to bring your own landscape material. A great course for those who want to extend their basic knowledge in creating paintings which include or focus on the natural world around you.
