Class Description:

Students will paint landscapes on location at various Humboldt County locations: Trinidad State Beach, Blue Lake Hatchery, Moonstone Beach, Arcata Marsh, and Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge. In this course students will explore contemporary and traditional approaches to landscape painting. Students will be exposed to a variety of landscape painters for inspiration on technique. An understanding of atmospheric perspective is essential to successful outcomes in this course. The class will focus on the effects of natural light in nature. Direct observation is required while painting outdoors. This course focuses on successful compositional outcomes. Students will master quick studies on site and grasp the concept of painting in a two hour window to prevent chasing shadows.  Students will experiment with paint quality, edges, and color. Students will focus on simplifying the landscape.

  • Paint: titanium white, cadmium yellow light, yellow ochre, cadmium red light, alizarin crimson, transparent oxide red or transparent burnt Sienna, ultramarine blue, viridian (optional colors: titanium buff or unbleached titanium).
