Each painting will begin with a miniature quick sketch to create good composition and establish color values before moving to canvas and paints. Students will learn color mixing and applicationtechniques designed to create light and shadow effects.Various aspects of the landscape will be explored as students will learn how to paint skies, trees, rocks, water, floral and structure.
