The primary goal of the workshop is to encourage participants to approach landscape painting with an experimental attitude and the idea that, “It’s only ten bucks worth of materials. Have some fun.” That isn’t to say that painting doesn’t require some knowledge of the principles of design and some discipline to apply them. However, sometimes the anxiety of thinking we have to produce a “finished product” often results in tight drawing, tight brushwork, and slavish attention to photo sources. Instead, let’s aim to challenge ourselves to “loosen up.” Along the way, we’ll talk about composition, values, and colour as they apply to our paintings.
