April 26, 2020: Landscape Painting Workshop: Mastering Composition by Valerie Kent at Luc Sculpture
Instructor: Valerie Kent
Level: Beginners and Intermediate
The landscape is a favourite subject of many painters. Over the years, the masters have learned there are geometrical formulas in landscape composition that can be applied to improve the impression of the painting. In this workshop, you will learn the method to unify the elements in the landscape to make it more effective when painting it on a two-dimensional shape. You will also learn many ways of manipulating subject and space to create a certain kind of composition.
Additionally, in this workshop, you will learn the “Rule of Thirds” and “Colour Theory” which help when applying atmospheric perspective to a scene. Once you know these and can use them effectively, you will be able to compose on how you want to present your landscape and where you want your viewer to look, your “centre of interest”.
You will receive a handout to help you in the future, plus there will be a demonstration, a step-by-step process, and one-on-one assistance. This is a terrific opportunity to learn a great deal in landscape painting, refresh or just join us to enjoy painting landscapes.
Fee: $130 + HST (all materials are included, and you will paint 2 of 16″ x 20″ paintings)
