About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this course is over. The last meeting was Tuesday, June 14, 2022.

Painting: Contemporary Landscape
Instructor: Edward Duff

This class will cover the basic foundations of landscape painting with a focus
on atmospheric perspective, accurate color mixing, composition, and photo
interpretation. Through demonstrations, individual instruction, group critiques,
and lectures on the history of landscape painting to the present, students will
be encouraged to find their own personal direction as they create contemporary
works of art. Demonstrations will be done in oil. Acrylic, gouache, and watercolor
painters are also welcome.

Painting: Contemporary Landscape
Instructor: Edward Duff

Enrollment is limited to 10 students per class and all students must wear a mask in
the building at all times.

Listed below are all of the recommended supplies for the class. Whether you plan
to pursue drawing or painting during the course of the class, PLEASE purchase only
the items I have marked with an asterisk * for the first day. On day one, I will go over the
materials list and answer any questions. Since this class is open to both drawing and
painting media, you are only to purchase what's needed for the medium you wish to
pursue
ie, oil, acrylic, watercolor or drawing in graphite / charcoal. If you already have
drawing and painting supplies, please bring what you have with you, and we will discuss
any additional materials you will need. Art supplies can be expensive, so I have listed the
basic materials you would need with cost in mind. You will see some brand names listed
below which I recommend. Please purchase though what is within your budget.

Most importantly, please bring a variety of photo reference from which to choose.
I recommend you bring photos that you have taken yourself. If you do not have any
images that you have taken, please research copyright free images online that you
can print and bring with you to class. High quality images that are either 4 x 6,
5 x 7, or larger are recommended. Additionally, you can use your laptop or tablet
instead.

1 graphite pencil (2B) *
1 kneaded eraser *

1 - 9 x 12 pad of Arches Oil Paper or Canson Canva-Paper for studies. Please look
for the Canva-Paper; not pad! The paper is rigid and easier to use than the floppy
canvas pad. *

1 palette - If you would prefer to use a disposable paper palette, Richeson Grey Matters
is a good option*

great glass jar for classroom work.*

Several small metal palette cups for holding odorless mineral spirits and painting
medium.

Liquin Original, Winsor and Newton Artists Painting Medium, or Galkyd. I recommend
making your own with a combination of Refined Linseed Oil and Gamsol Odorless
Mineral Spirits.
