The Space of a Painting: Landscape
with Jeremy Herndl
The focus of this workshop will be on creating a tactile depth in a landscape painting. Beginning on the first day with very thin washes in either oil or acrylic, the goal is to retain a watercolour-like translucency and luminosity to the painting. The following day, participants will experiment with impasto applications of paint to enhance the visceral potential of the painted picture giving it a surface depth and texture.
Date: Saturday/Sunday, April 22 & 23
Time: 11am – 3pm
