Learn to Paint Landscapes & Seascapes in Oil Instructor: Douglas David Class will cover the basic principles of oil painting with regard to landscape and seascape painting. Discussions and lectures on basic composition, massing, building form, light and shadow, near and far, capturing and developing atmospheric distance and depending on your own style, knowing when awork is finished (learning how to not overwork you painting). Students will work in their own style/technique so that the finished work is their own. Douglas will overview his palette and concepts his work entails. After a brief morning intro and a time to mix palettes, Douglas will have various studies of both landscapes and seascapes and will demo most all of them. The entire workshop will take place in studio and all work will be done from photos Douglas provides. Depending on the skill level of each student, students are able to grow and develop at a rate that is to their comfort. Demos and individual discussions/instruction will help each student to begin to reach the preliminary goals they are striving to meet. Plan to produce several studies and at least one larger painting. Plan to bring a notebook/sketchbook and enjoy some demos along with some great stories to help you remember.
