Painting can be daunting when we get stuck in the endless details. This class aims to pull you out of the weeds and focus on the big picture to make paintings that evoke a strong feeling of the place. Using the landscape as our inspiration, students will learn to simplify and distill scenes to make powerful and expressive paintings – “All at Once”. Learn about the concepts of Alla Prima, and how to paint a jewel while loosening up and seeing the big picture. This class will take place in the studio with photos of the local landscape for reference.
This class will be accessible and fun for the novice or more experienced painter. Acrylic paints will be supplied, but oils are welcome if you would like to bring your own paint and supplies.
