“California Classic Landscape” 2-day acrylic workshop SAC (Aug 2020)

 

California Classic Landscape is an exciting 2-day landscape adventure!  Grassy knolls and emerald hills are only the beginning…this 2-day workshop allows you to dive a little deeper into landscape detail.  The first day of the workshop will give you a strong foundation in how to create a successful landscape through composition and color.  It is important to be able to capture the subtlety of light and atmosphere in any vista so we will put some attention on our skies as well.  On the second day we will refine our landscapes, jump into some smaller brushes and play with the details:  Trees, flowers and water!  Technique demonstrations will be given each day covering glazing, layering and color-mixing in order to create a simple landscape (pictured above).    By using a limited color palette of only four (you heard right – four!) colors we will build transparent and opaque layers to ultimately capture the receding grandeur of a beautiful valley.

All levels welcome!  This workshop is a great introduction to acrylic for the beginner.   More advanced artists can fine tune their skills and really push themselves.  The class environment is always open and supportive to whatever skill level you are at.

There will be a 1 hour meal break mid-workshop.
