This week we will be halfway through our Drawing & Painting class. We've been working on still life and I will reset the still life for those who would like to finish their paintings from last week.
Next up, I would like us to approach painting a landscape from a picture. Again I want to emphasize reduction of details to overall shape and compositional elements to allow ourselves room for the paint to do its work. Bring a picture of landscape of some kind or use one of my pictures that I print out – and lets let ourselves be BEACHY in these hot days of summer.
