How do artists capture the mood and light effects in landscape? In this workshop, participants explore how to use color and form to create an expressive landscape painting.
A demonstration shows how to use color and simple shapes as a starting point and how to create atmospheric perspective and depth while developing individual styles. Photos to work from are provided but students are welcome to bring their own photos or digital devices to paint from. Each student should bring their own roll of paper towels for the painting class.
