Abstracting the Landscape online painting course Cornwall with Anita Reynolds

ABSTRACTING THE LANDSCAPE

In this exciting new online Abstracting the Landscape course artist Anita Reynolds takes you through a host of different exercises to help you free up your approach to landscape. 

The course is pre-recorded so that you can take your time to really absorb the wealth of advice, practical exercises and demonstartions throughout the course. We would advise spending around 3-4 days working your way through the course. You have unlimited access to the course for 12 months. 

Simply click on the link we send you in your purchase confirmation email from which you can play the main course film and also see the five accompanying coastal landscape looped films which you can paint from.

Some people may choose to go out into their surrounding landscape to do the exercises but if not then the five films of the Cornish landscape, complete with the sights and sounds of the sea, will be a fantastic resource to work with from the comfort of your own home. The exercises are demonstrated wonderfully by artist Anita Reynolds with lots of hints and tips and then the directions for what you can then do are written on the screen for you in text which you can pause to really take in the advice. It is a jam packed course with lots of exercises for you to do and a wealth of advice and instruction from one of the UK's leading coastal painters.

Chapters within the course include:

Thumbnail sketches to establish composition

Line drawing over a grid to create a series of abstract compositions
