Supply List

 

Week One - June 24th (Saturday) - Color Wheel and color mixing, learn to assess values (black & white), mixing interesting greens, muting/unsaturating color. Learning how to mix greens is important when you paint a landscape because there is so much green out there. 

 

Understanding the anatomy of an ideal landscape. Value indicates how light or dark a color is. Understanding value is key to a successful painting. Values help create distance and atmosphere in a painting. We will try to interpret the landscape in black and white to simplify the concept. This will be the foundation for future classes.

 

Brushwork, edges, composition - these topics will be discussed throughout the workshop.

 

Mindful sketching & Color Mixing and how I think through color. I will also go over some of my favorite materials.

 


Week Two - July 1st, 2nd (Saturday & Sunday) - Apply what we have learned in W1 and paint a landscape from start to finish. I will paint to demonstrate how I think through color and how I simplify a complex landscape.

Week Three - July 8th, 9th (Saturday & Sunday) - Apply what we have learned in W1 and W2 and paint a seascape from start to finish. I will paint to demonstrate how I think through color and how I simplify a complex scene.
