What is the course about?

Making a series of studies, using a range of painting approaches, you will respond to the theme of landscape and a sense of place. You will work directly on location and in the studio environment to become more confident in making choices for developing your own compositions.

What will we cover?

Using a range of painting media - water and oil-based paint, you will explore the landscape elements of light, space and mass. Making observed studies directly in the outdoor environment and taking inspiration from your own painted studies photographs, you will be supported to develop your own painted compositions. The work of relevant historical and contemporary artists will introduce potential approaches to use within your own landscape painting.
