ABSTRACT LANDSCAPE IN OILS COURSE
This exciting new three day course takes students through the exhilarating experience of painting abstract landscape paintings in oil. Gareth will help students to understand how composition and structure are central to painting successful abstract landscapes and he will teach the group how to employ many different painting techniques, oil paint mediums and tools.
The first day will be spent out in the field gathering information and making studies to be developed into paintings in the studio on days two and three under the guidance of Gareth. The course will emphasise emotional and poetic atmosphere over realistic topographical detail. Allowing the painting to become an object in itself and to be resolved intuitively.
Gareth will also discuss and show examples to the group of different Modern and Contemporary abstract landscape painters from around the world.
A fantastic opportunity to learn about the medium of oil painting from a leading abstract landscape painter.
All drawing materials, supports and paint will be supplied by the art school.
A reasonable level of fitness is required for this course.
