Loose, Lush, Landscapes
Bonnie Cutts, Instructor
Dates: June 24th – 26th, 2019 (9am-4pm)
Materials Fee: $30
Join me for three days of painting with acrylics and approach landscape painting in a simplified abstract way. Reference landscape photos or images from memory for subject matter and have fun exploring loose applications of paint using brushes loaded paint and/or pouring paint for interesting effects. Learn about adding texture with acrylic gels and molding pastes and decide which materials best suit your personal style. The focus of the class will be on capturing the larger shapes in the landscape rather than smaller details. Class will warm up with quick drawings to define shapes in the landscape image to be painted. Learn about mixing colors for clean crisp mixtures and how matte or gloss gels and mediums affect color. Each student will finish several small paintings packed with emotion, all with a different feeling depending on the acrylic materials used. All levels of painting experience are welcome.
