Land and Sea Painting

Campus contacts

Explore landscapes, seascapes or any celebration of nature in watercolor or acrylics. Capture light and atmosphere, and learn about design and composition. Expect personal attention, demos and constructive feedback. All levels welcome.

Celebrate the grandeur of nature in any style you prefer, from traditional (representational) to contemporary abstract. Learn to capture the atmosphere with initial washes, followed by layering (glazing), study of light and shadows to build works to completion with strategic contrasts and focal point. Capture the essence of your scene through use of values - gradation or diluting of paints. Learn to use the white of the paper or canvas; apply washes, glazes, then final opaque brush strokes. Painting is easy; you just need to know when to paint and when to quit!
