Oil Painting with Paul Bachem – Early Spring 2017

Oil Painting with Paul Bachem – Early Spring 2017

Intermediate Landscape Painting

 6 weeks • Tuesday mornings
March 7, 14, 21, 28, April 4, 18, 2017, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm
Fee: 240m/$270 nm

Hone the fundamental theories of landscape painting. Learn why your subject matter looks the way it does-the importance of being able to judge value (how light or dark an object is), hue (what color is it?) and chroma (how vivid or dull the color is). The assessment and placement of these three elements in your work is key to the realistic rendering of three-dimensional objects in the two-dimensional world of painting. Materials list provided at registration.
