Landscapes en Plein Air – 5 Session Tutored Course with Brian Reynolds

July 11th, July 18th, July 25th, August 1st, August 8th, 10am until 12:30, at the Gallery

This 5 week course is intended for anyone, regardless of experience, who wishes to
develop their experience of landscape painting and drawing. We shall be working en plein air, but we shall use the term landscape very broadly: you can concentrate on making studies of specific aspects of the environment if you wish, or you can work on larger-scale pieces. You will be encouraged to move to larger scale work as the course proceeds.

The tuition will be almost entirely one-to-one, at your easel and adjusted to your own level of experience, but we shall also begin each session with a short group discussion on some key aspect of work with and in, the landscape. Primarily, we’ll be thinking about composition but we’ll be looking at other aspects of landscape such as aerial perspective, creating mood (largely about depicting the weather) and using the sky as a major element in our work. We shall conclude each session with a plenary when we consider what has been learned that day and what can be learned from each other’s progress.

Please work in whichever medium, dry or wet, you choose. Your choice will determine the equipment you need. Contact Brian or Lindsey if you are unsure about just what to bring. We shall have to face another issue, whether to complete in one day or to continue in a following session, as we proceed.
