Abstract Landscape Painting
Taught by Karen Lynn Ingalls
2018 Workshop to be scheduled
Would you like to simplify your landscape painting to get at essentials? Or take what you see and use it as a springboard to a new creation, rather than painting more realistically?
In this workshop, we will focus first on the one indispensible element of any landscape painting. Next, you will learn several different ways to simplify and play with images of the landscape, re-creating it in abstract form. Then you'll create a series of tiny paintings, and one or two larger paintings, as you try each approach.
We'll also look at inspirational examples of historical and contemporary abstract landscape paintings, to see and understand some of the approaches other painters have taken to abstract the landscape.
Painting in this way strips the image down to its essence. If you usually paint more realistic-looking landscapes, it may change the way you see the world!
This class is designed for people with at least some previous painting experience, and we'll be using versatile, fast-drying acrylic paints.
