These classes with instructor Debra VanLeen focus on the changing colors of the seasons. Having the correct palette to describe your landscape’s mood and feeling is important and at times the color combinations that really work can surprise you.
The class meets six times this year. The group meets on a Fri. evening for a demonstration, discussion on color and inspiration for your landscape painting. The following day is spent creating one or two landscape paintings using the seasonal pallet.
Students need to bring appropriate photos to work from. Please, no published pictures, only those you have taken. Have the printout in both color and black and white.
