Expressive Landscape Painting
Bildwerk Frauenau, Germany
9 – 16 August 2024
Colour and tone, mark making as well as observation and time spent in the landscape will all add to the fluency in creating a convincing view of a landscape. In this class we will broaden our technical knowledge, train our gaze, and develop a practical and expressive approach to landscape painting.
On the first day, we start with some basic exercises. Drawing from a life model will help us becoming acquainted with measuring, tone, as well as objective observation. We will then move on to landscape getting inspirations from the surrounding environment of Frauenau and the Bavarian Forest. We learn to apply oil colours in different ways and develop a fast and exciting way of making marks to add a sense of movement and expression to our paintings bringing the landscapes to life.
