I enjoy the challenge of painting any subject, but I’m always drawn to landscapes. I am fascinated by the concept of the horizon, the coming together of sky and earth (or water) to create a line that doesn’t exist in reality. Any painting we create is a window into a world. It may be a painting of a dappled forest, a mountain vista, a cup and saucer on a table or the flowers in your garden, but when hung on a wall it extends the viewer’s vision into a space beyond the wall. Using the tricks and tools at our disposal we entice the viewer into that world, hopefully to stay awhile.

When painting a landscape, we are challenged to create, among other things, depth and atmosphere. In this weekend course we will explore creating that depth and atmosphere using composition, linear and atmospheric perspective, the push and pull of elements, colour mixing, values, neutralizing colours (eg. blues and greens), negative painting, creating interesting skies, and anything else that may come up. And, of course, there will be FUN!
