Painting of island reflected in water

The Elements of Landscape Painting Studio and Plein Air

August 24 @ 10:00 am3:00 pm
| Cost: $80 | Cost for Members: $68

Landscapes can impress, inform and inspire us. The creative artist does not just replicate what they see, but seeks to capture and express their reaction to their experience. Join artist Robert Masla as he shares with you over 40 years of painting and teaching experience in a relaxed and informative environment. Masla will lead you through paint-along demonstrations, revealing not just the various techniques on how to portray depth, light, value and atmosphere, but also how our individual emotional response connects to the landscape to convey a mood in our painting.  The importance of understanding your intention and its influence on the planning of your composition and the execution of creating a successful landscape painting either in the studio or en plein air will also be explained. The class will begin painting in the studio and then move outside. Bring a lunch or plan to dine at the Museums’ Blake House Café. For all levels. Supply list, images and a Fredrix canvas panel provided.
