An expressive and bold approach to the landscape tradition, working one day plein air and one day in the studio. Students will be develop skills to paint and draw the landscape in an immediate, powerful and spontaneous way.

Students will come away with a wide range of skills to continue in their own practice. They will have an understanding of techniques with mixed media, including ink, watercolour and pastel and how these can be utilized to capture the essence of a landscape. They will have an understanding of acrylic and oil painting techniques, particularly alla prima techniques as they relate to landscape.

Over the weekend students will produce a number of drawings and studies as well as one or two (depending on scale) finished artworks.

Day1:
Working outdoors (plein air) in Middle Harbour. The location will offer a wide variety of landscape subject matter. We will start with quick sketches and progress to larger works using mixed media. Demonstrations of sketching, mixed media and oil painting. Approaches to looking at and interpreting the landscape.

Day 2:
Working in the studio at Workshop Arts Centre. Students will have an opportunity to work longer on one piece and resolve some of the ideas and techniques from the previous day.

Beginners to advanced students welcome.
