Summer Class Series: Elements of Painting

$180.00 $160.00

In this class series, we will focus on painting landscapes. All six classes will be held indoors in my Soquel studio. (Saturdays June 16 – July 28, with no class July 7.) Each student will work at their own pace with individual attention during the painting process. Through the course of the six classes, you will be developing various skills and techniques of seeing and painting. And we’ll have fun!  – mh

I will demonstrate the various steps in the creation of a landscape painting. My instruction will include selected topics such as color mixing, value, color, shape, line, texture, and edges as they relate to the project for the class and your individual painting. Learning to “quick sketch” will aid you in exploring your composition in more detail before committing to a larger format. This class is intended to expand your knowledge base for creating a strong painting.

You will work from your own reference material, photos and / or plein air sketches. You will bring three or four images to work from during the series. We will explore the elements of painting together. Simple value sketches will be made before moving on to color. Different formats and sections of your references will be painted, before moving to a larger format.
