'Landscape - Real and Imagined '
Wednesdays 10 am - 12noon from 21st September
For beginner and improvers. 11 classes in 2 blocks of 5 and 6
In this course we will look at all the elements that go into making a convincing landscape, tools to make an interesting composition, and how to construct a landscape of your imagination. The first half will be nuts and bolts - colour mixing and composition tools. In the second half of the course we will look more at style and creating our own landscapes of the imagination
Classes will include demonstrations and instruction in a range of mediums including watercolour, acrylic, oils and water-soluble oils. Students are free to use their favourite materials. Some materials will be available for experimentation.
