Have you ever seen a beautiful winter landscape painting and thought to yourself, I wish I could paint like that? Guess what? You absolutely can! In this class you will learn how to create your very own landscapes and leave with at least one completed painting. We will cover the use of color, perspective, light, value, how to create your own compositions, and more. You will start with a sketch and move along during the length of the course with plenty of one-on-one assistance from the instructor as well as class demonstrations to help you along the way. We will move from basic shape and color placement to working with finishing details and final touches! Students are welcome to follow along with the instructor’s demonstrations in more of a step-by-step manner, or bring in a reference photograph and work more independently with the instructor's guidance. This course is great for any skill level, whether you have been painting for years or have never touched a brush or palette knife before you will be able to go home with something you are proud of!
