Deconstructing the Landscape

For  MAPAPA Members Only

Painting outdoors is, more than anything else, about ‘learning to see’ and being a dedicated student of nature. It is about being an effective ‘hunter gatherer’ and harvesting information. We will endeavor to make the landscape a little less intimidating by deconstructing it into separate components.

To this end we will complete various exercises in the field to enable us to:
1) gather accurate color note information - including an in-depth session on 'seeing the value in color'
2) start deconstructing the landscape into shapes of color rather than nameable objects
3)pay particular attention to the notan theory of dark and light arrangements
4) embrace abstract design
5) learn to group values into a manageable and beneficial number
6) make our sketchbook ‘key’ in the process of studying and developing ideas.

Remember that: "all representational art is abstract, and all abstract art is representational."

Maximum: 15 students

$425 per person, members only
Advanced beginner to Advanced Student (all students should have experience painting outdoors)
