Workshop Content: Conjure the spirit of the landscape in this innovative program. Discover secrets and strategies for interpreting and simplifying the landscape as you build your painting from the ground up with overlapping bands and interlocking shapes. Learn negative painting strategies and the successful sequencing of opaque and transparent glazes for a luxurious patina and gentle glow in your work.
Explore brushwork techniques for creating textures and subtle transitions of delicate tints and muted hues. Learn how to layer lost and found edges to suggest windswept meadows and distant trees. Investigate how and where to use captured negatives and establish minimal hard edges to gradually bring your work into soft focus.Whether you work on location, from your imagination or photos, you will be amazed by this elegant, alternative method of painting the landscape.
Workshop format: This workshop will be held on Zoom. Students may gather at Chota to work together or enjoy the workshop from the comfort of their home. Each of our three days together includes live Keynote presentations, paint- along exercises, a full video demonstration, personal painting time and live Q&A. Linda will create a private webpage for the workshop where you will find reference photos, student handouts, specific supply lists and a bonus video. All of the main demonstrations will be posted on our webpage for 6 weeks following the workshop.
