Course Description:

One figure in the landscape would be ambitious.  We’ll go for two.  In addition to setting the stage for a two-figure composition in the studio, we will also work with the models IN the landscape in order to best establish a connection between the figures and the surroundings.

The canvas size is the decision of each participant, but a large-sized canvas is encouraged: no guts, no glory.

Special attention will be given to:

  • Finding meaning in Composition: the relationships of the figures to each other and the surrounding landscape
  • Strategies for managing a large-scale work
  • Object-oriented light vs. atmosphere-oriented light
  • Sustaining unity

Recommended Materials:

  • Wood Palette
  • 1 Palette Knife
  • Linseed oil
  • Tintorsetto (this is a substitute for turpentine.  Normal solvents are NOT ALLOWED in the studio.)
