12 Week Oil Painting Class

Thursdays  September 7 - November 30

12:30 - 3:30
Swinton's studios, Calgary, AB


This session will start with a brand new subject: the figure in the landscape which we'll paint from life in Carburn Park in the SE.  No studio light can mimic sunshine, and the added variable of foliage, water, and sky colours bouncing onto our model makes this section of the course especially exciting and full of colour challenges.

We'll follow this with a unit of independent subject work in the Swinton's studio.  This is a great opportunity to finish work that you started outside, or to bring in something that you're working on at home. I'll help you to develop your ideas and solve problems through individual instruction and demos. 

Still life will be the final component of this session.  You'll learn how to compose objects to create balance, emphasis, rhythm, and movement.  We'll explore colour interactions and the movement of tone and colour.  Still life is a perfect microcosm for landscape artists, since it provides a controlled environment in which to manipulate and explore all of the elements that make up successful landscape painting.

Please contact me for registration and information.
