Unleash your creativity, tap into the subconscious, and create new, exciting, and believable worlds. This class is geared for representational landscape artist-enthusiasts. Taught with lecture and live-painting demos this 2-session Saturday class will familiarize you with the essential principles of landscape painting and introduce fun exercises to free up your imagination to take your paintings to the next level. Once you master the principles of landscape painting, you can tackle any landscape, seascape, or cityscape, whether real or imagined.
Come join Eve Skylar, Art Director and painter in the animation industry, for “Landscapes From Imagination.”
The course will cover:

-how to simplify environment conditions and compose with color, value, and temperature to emphasize mood, time of day, and season within a landscape
-thumbnailing, doodling, massing, speedpainting and other techniques for generating new scenes
-how to use good references, deviate from them, and paint better than your photos
-how to translate small studies into real or imagined landscapes
