This is a 2-day workshop. All classes run 9 – 4 pm each day with lunch included from 12 – 1 pm.
From the Degas to the American realist painters such as Estes, to present day, photographs have been used for decades as both a resource material from which to launch from and as a direct source from which to replicate from.
The intention of this workshop is to enable the student to gain a clearer understanding as to how to use this resource material, by helping landscape painters working in oil, to compose, abstract, and how to simplify their painting as they work. Traditional methods and materials will both be demonstrated and taught throughout this course such as site size and comparative measuring and the nature of oil paint. Mark making and the specific use of brushes will also be addressed. The class will begin by a demonstration using a photograph as a resource material and various methods and approaches will be discussed and demonstrated. The instructor will provide attentive direction and a hands-on approach.
This price includes: tuition, daily lunch, material fees (if required), any applicable taxes and is listed in Canadian Dollars.
