Do you want to loosen up and be able to paint something that evokes a landscape but is not so realistic?

If this sounds like you this course will teach you how to simplify your reference photo into shapes and block in your painting. You will continue to build up layers and textures and make revisions to complete your composition. 


In this workshop you will: 

  • Create a loose mixed-media landscape painting.
  • Learn to simplify a photo reference
  • Learn how to mix neutrals
  • Gain a better understanding of composition and values. 
  •  Receive feedback and get direction. 


Time: 10-4 Both days

Where: My Studio - Address sent upon registration.
