Landscape Painting Bootcamp
A Workshop with Master Plein Air Painter Sharon Weaver
1 Day, Sunday December 4th 2016, 10am - 5pm
Many artists want to paint landscapes but are overwhelmed by the complexity of nature and intimidated by venturing outside, setting up an easel and painting. The forms are complicated and it can be confusing. This studio workshop class will help all levels of artists to gain the basic building blocks needed to paint a landscape painting.
Sharon will demonstrate how to paint several basic elements found in most landscapes.
Learn the methods for painting a realistic palm tree and oak tree with help mixing believable greens. Understand which blue makes the best sky using variations in value for depth. Learn how to simplify shapes to create realistic rocks.
Sharon is an expert at painting water and can show you how to paint water using different colors and brush strokes. Learn her steps for painting a wave. See how highlights on the water bring life and sparkle to your painting.
Sharon will show you how to take these valuable lessons to create a complete landscape painting.
