Transforming a Field Study Material List
Transforming a Field Study into a Studio Painting
This course will focus on transforming a field study into a finished studio landscape painting.  It will be a semi- paint along where I will demonstrate the process and techniques that help make this transformation successful.  Topics covered will include:
Transferring the sketch to the canvas and recomposing your composition for maximum impact.
Composing using a monochromatic underpainting to easily adjust composition and values.
Color theory and color mixing.
Exploring the advantages and limitations of working in a full or a limited value and color range.
Adjusting color to create a sense of light, space, and form.
Exploring different methods and materials to create various textures in the underpainting and in the final layers.
Experiment with using unique tools and brushes which will expand the possibilities for applying paint to the surface to present a greater sense of reality while also creating a varied and interesting paint quality.
Applying glazes and mediums to present an additional dimension to the surface of the painting.
Different methods for adding the right amount of detail required to suit the artist’s intention.
Each day will start with a demonstration followed by the students applying what was demonstrated to their own artwork.
Prerequisite: Intermediate Courses or Permission of the Instructor
