Confidently Understand the Landscape and Its Elements for Better Paintings on Zoom

by Michael King

"" by Ann Hilton  "Rox" by Ann Hilton"" by Ann Hilton

Wednesdays Sept 29, October 6, 13, and 20  1- 4 pm

Let’s deep dive into landscape painting by understanding the fundamental structures of the landscape (depth, light, atmospheric perspective, shapes, its natural chaos, its four planes, and more) while also breaking down various elements of painting skies, clouds and water. We’ll also cover painting essentials such as the need for variety in edges, variety of colour temperature, controlling values in colour, and composition all for the sake of controlling your focal point.  After the first class, each session will start by giving feedback on the participant’s work from the previous week.  For those wanting a final critique after the four sessions, separate zoom calls can be arranged individually or as a group at no extra cost to those in the workshop.

Michael will be demonstrating with acrylic and oil paints.

Michael King

Michael is a contemporary Canadian painter and art instructor based in Port Coquitlam. He works primarily as an oil painter and is known for his plein air landscapes. With an eye for how light, shadow, and colour temperature form the fundamental elements of a scene, King's practice blends representation with impressionistic aesthetics.

Michael has done a workshop at the Guild before and comes back by popular demand.
