Abstracting the Landscape - Watercolor & Acrylic painters welcome!!
When painting the landscape, either from photos or plein air, what is our aim? We can take the point of view of showing something as accurately as possible, or we can paint how a view feels to us personally. This workshop will focus on the latter. Last year, while painting in France, I discovered just how much fun and freeing it is to paint how a landscape feels. This invariably leads to a more abstract viewpoint, but working from the standpoint of an emotional response, a painting can be expressed in many ways, from exaggerated color, or somewhat abstract, to completely non-objective. It all starts with an idea. Join me in this exploration.
Because we’ll be in Oregon in February, we will be working mostly from photos or our imagination, however, weather permitting, we may get outside to work. For more information or to reserve your spot, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 503-998-5833.
Tuition $325 for three full days.
