This amazing studio seascape painting workshop will focus on waves and an exciting seascape. Learn to paint the wave and capture the atmosphere and time of day. Class will cover the basic principles of oil painting with regard to seascape painting. Discussions and lectures on basic composition, massing, building form, light and shadow, near and far, capturing and developing atmospheric distance and depending on your own style, knowing when a work is finished (learning how to not overwork you painting). Students will work in their own style/technique so that the finished work is their own.
Douglas will overview his palette and concepts his work entails. After a brief morning intro and adequate time to mix and set up the palette, Douglas will demo a seascape and have the class follow along. Much time will be allowed for individual discussion and review in a systematic rotation. Depending on the skill level of each student, students are able to grow and develop at a rate that is to their comfort. Demos and individual discussions/instruction will help each student to begin to reach the preliminary goals they are striving to meet. Plan to produce several studies and at least one larger painting. Plan to bring notebook/sketchbook and enjoy some demos along with some great stories to help you remember these principles that are the foundation of Douglas’ teaching.
