Painting Figures in The Landscape
Third Session – All Levels
Introducing the human element will give your landscape paintings an accent like nothing else can. It seems we all make the same mistakes when attempting to paint figures and once you know what you’re doing wrongyou’ll be surprised how quickly you’ll become adept at introducing lively, believable characters into your landscape paintings. It’s fun to capture man’s relationship to nature or even his awkward contrast to his environment. You will explore a variety of ways to use the human form as an accent, point of interest or dominant character in landscape paintings. Don’s class is geared to artists at all levels with lots of daily demonstrations and personal attention.
