Abstracting the Landscape - Painting Approaches   

In this hands-on studio course, members will explore various approaches to simplifying and abstracting landscapes. Through a series of exercises using acrylic paint, composition, format, focus, value, and color palette will be addressed. Nature is extremely complex with numerous shapes, details, and colors. It is impossible to capture it all in a work of art! Rather, it is the task of the artist to simplify and interpret the view and to hone in on what will convey the essence of a scene. This course will give participants the tools to begin the journey!
