Explore different ways to see and paint the landscape in this all day workshop series. This approach will free you from details or the need to create faithful reproductions and introduces you to creative ways of interpreting the landscape.

Three sessions, three paintings: Each day we will explore a way of simplifying the landscape that will lead to a semi-abstract or abstract approach to painting. We will look at how to compose the landscape by focusing on elements such as shape, movement and colour. Prepare yourself to be bold and have fun!

Demonstrations will be done in oil and acrylic using brushes and the painting knife. This workshop spans three weeks.

Date: 3 weeks, Fridays July 6,13,& 20. Time: 10am 4pm. Materials not included

Instructor: Branka Marinkovic
