Workshop Description

Often painters want to paint landscapes that include structures. The piece can often feel tight, rendered and uninteresting…Here’s a class that takes you through a step-by-step process of the adding correct architectural features while retaining a freshness and immediacy to the work. There is a fine balance one must retain. Get the perspective correct, but add the flair. The course will include a simple perspective lesson, layering techniques, experimentation in brushwork, pushing the color and methods of grabbing the light and shadows without losing a flair. We will discuss what some of the Bay Area painters did in their works that included jazzy rooftops, sunlit streets and shadows that sing!
