Landscape Painting Course

August 23, 2016 § 3 Comments

Mount Washington GroupThe heat of the summer will be coming to an end soon and we will be entering the fall landscape painting season!  I am teaching a landscape painting course at the Ashland Art Center for both experienced and beginning painters.  As usual, drawing is fine for the whole session if you prefer.  Oil paints are what I use, but if you prefer watercolor or acrylic or pastel or xyz, that is just fine; the principles remain the same, even as the material changes.
This class will be useful for both plein air and photo reference painters.  We will cover specific issues of landscape painting —  light, color, perspective, drawing, composing.
Three classroom sessions where we discuss fundamentals, see demos and slides of various artists applying the principles in their own unique way.
Two field sessions will be opportunities to see me paint and ask specific questions as well as paint alongside and get personal feedback.  The field sessions will be held in a shady place.  Feel free to bring your chairs and get comfy.
As usual, the class will be chock full of things to think about, things to challenge you and will be fun and encouraging too.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions at sarahfburns@gmail.com.

    Really great stuff…I am somehow reminded of my old friend Ken Kesey: oregon is beautiful…so sorry that it was the hottest summer on record in new hampshire: your fruits of that trip are amazing! Esp. like that one of the light green trees with grasses in the background!

  • Sarah,

    This sounds great, and I can’t make it. Are you still doing any more *selectively* open figure drawing sessions? Fridays would work great for me. 🙂
