Painting Horizons with Rowen Matthews - Holiday Workshop

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

An oil painting on paper or canvas workshop. Participants will learn to paint distant horizons, distant mountains, fields, paddocks, deserts, wilderness and mountain ranges, creating visual distance with colour, tone, scale, and the expressive application of paint.

We will look at expressionist painting techniques including the work of Kyffin Williams, Van Gogh, Logue, Langlois, Ryan, and Richter. The workshop is suitable for beginners and those artists who are already developing a landscape painting practice. Participants will follow the process of preparing paper and stretched canvas for oil paint and explore inventive expressionist techniques for depicting the horizon. We will look at rhythms, repeated shapes, indicators of depth, and abstract qualities of distance and form.
