Sky Riot by Julie Houck

 

 

Traditional landscape painting adheres to basic fundamental of composition, light, perspective and form. However, the landscape can also be seen as a series of abstract relationships that comprise a cohesive whole. How does one see beyond the literal view to capture the intrinsic essence of a landscape? How does one interpret a scene in a new way?

Working en plein air and in the studio, Using classical as well as direct painting techniques, this workshop emphasis is on how to create new relationships that suggest form and light versus merely rendering what one sees. Large as well as small format compositions will be covered.
