Outline: The Impressionistic Landscape & Florals

Do you want to loosen up your painting style, learn how to paint more impressionistically? This workshop is designed for those wanting to work on their painting skills and techniques and experience what color and brushstroke can do for your painting . We will be talking about:

1. Inspiration- how and where to get inspired
2. Color – how to mix and use colors
3. Composition – what makes a good composition
4. Brushstrokes – how to loosen up and create more impressionistic as opposed to realistic paintings.

After a brief discussion and introduction, I will be doing a demo in oil paints to start off the workshop. Some of the topics covered during the demo will include :

1. The underpainting;
2. design and composition
3. how to get started on the values in your painting
4. negative space painting, and
5. color mixing

The rest of the day you will be working on your own paintings, your choice of subject matter. If you are a fast painter, make sure you bring lots of canvasses and reference photos. I will provide guidance on a one-on-one basis throughout the day.

The key to enjoying painting lies in letting go of pre-conceived notions, loosening up and having fun!
