Description

Painting the Land in Oils with Hayley Lander

Sundays > 12:30pm – 3:00pm
Term 1 | 19 February – 26 March

Join us for a new six week course exploring dynamic approaches to painting the landscape! This oil painting class extends your understanding of materials and techniques; each week we will illustrate elements of the environment around us – sky, land, urban, and bush environments – before launching into an independent project.

Content >

18 Feb:
To kick of, we will delve into transient, luminous skies. Traverse through history to learn from the masters and develop studies exploring colouration, luminosity, texture and movement.

25 Feb:
Following on from our warm-up studies, we will strengthen our understanding of the basic principles of landscape painting. This week’s aim; to develop convincing illustrations of perspective and create engaging compositions.

4 Mar:
This week we will experiment with the application of paint and its impact on the mood of a landscape.

11 Mar:
Contemporary approaches to the landscape will be our topic this week. We will experiment with the possibilities of photographic source material to create dynamic paintings.

18 Mar &
25 Mar:
The final two weeks will be a chance to use what you have learnt during the course in an independent project. This is your chance to develop a painting of your own chosen subject and style. Under technical guidance, we will progress through the process of creating an initial concept, composition, ground painting, and main painting body.
