What makes a great landscape painting? It’s not simply paint on canvas. Play of Light, Mystery, Passion, Composition, and Accurate Rendering. Those are the key ingredients for a masterful landscape painting. In this class you will learn exactly how these choice ingredients work. You will learn how to effectively utilize and combine them into a beautiful landscape. Don’t just paint a landscape; allow your art to transport your viewer to another place and time!

Open for all skill levels, Dan’s comprehensive technique will enable the artist in you. Join us in making something spectacular!

Supplies to bring:

Canvas: one 16x20

Note: The list of colors is merely a suggestion for those who have no idea what to bring. If you are an experienced painter, just bring your normal colors.

Warm Blue (Phthalo)

Cool Blue (Ultramarine)

Warm Red (like Scarlet Lake)

Cool Yellow (Lemon or Cadmium HUE)

BRUSHES:

REQUIRED: A two-inch (or wider) “CHIP BRUSH” (NOT a NICE 2” brush)

An assortment of BRISTLE brushes, sizes 2 - 12. My favorites are Filberts.

If you like you may add a few sable or synthetic filbert brushes-- Nothing smaller than a #2.

For signing paintings, use a high-quality Winsor Newton Series 7-- size 1 or 2.
