Have you ever looked at a beautiful scene, and wished you could capture it on canvas? You'll learn how here, creating a landscape painting from a photograph, and using a limited palette and water–soluble acrylic paints.

This all comes from a perspective of non-judgement – it's essential to tame the inner critic in order to be creative! We paint in a spirit of discovery and experimentation.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • How to create a landscape painting from a photograph

  • How to choose your palette, mix colors, and create beautiful color harmonies

  • How to begin – and where to take it from there, working with the big shapes in the painting

  • How to approach composition and design

  • How to give your landscapes the illusion of distance

  • The inner game of painting (how and why to tame your inner critic)

By the end of the weekend, you will have a landscape painting to take home with you. You will also take home Karen's mini-book on Landscape Painting, as a resource for your landscape painting from here on out.

This class is designed for people with at least some previous acrylic painting experience.
