Landscape Painting Workshop: Master the Composition
Sunday, Apr. 26th, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Instructor: Valerie Kent
Level: Beginners and Intermediate
The landscape is a favorite subject of many painters. Have you known that there are theories behind your painting experience? Learn and try out some theories on landscape painting that have worked for many artists and expand your techniques!
In this workshop, you will learn the method to unify the elements in the landscape to make it more effective when painting it on a two-dimensional shape. You will also learn many ways of manipulating subject and space to create a certain kind of composition.
Additionally, in this workshop, you will learn the “Rule of Thirds” and “Colour Theory” which help when applying atmospheric perspective to a scene. Once you know these and can use them effectively, you will be able to compose on how you want to present your landscape and where you want your viewer to look, your “centre of interest”.
You will receive a handout to help you in the future, plus there will be a demonstration, a step-by-step process, and one-on-one assistance. This is a terrific opportunity to learn a great deal in landscape painting, refresh or just join us to enjoy painting landscapes.
Fee: $130 + HST (all materials are included, and you will paint 2 of 16″ x 20″ paintings)
