Day One: Landscape Fundamentals
Covers the key elements needed for a successful landscape painting; design, value, color and brushwork. Students will learn how to have a strategy to capture the scene before them with a simplified design and correct color relationships.
Day Two: Figure Fundamentals

The focus is on painting people in an environment; such as a beach or cafe and designing the figure ground relationship.
