This workshop will focus on creative problem solving and skill development in order to simplify the overwhelming complexity of landscapes. Students learn to create space through drawing and color, develop a sense of light through color/value interpretation, and understand the interaction between 3-dimensional description and 2-dimensional design. Various ways of managing the practical difficulties of working on site are also addressed.
Experience in basic observational drawing and with oil and/or acrylic paint are recommended.

Registered students will receive the instructor’s supply list.
