Landscape Oil Painting with Mary Bentz Gilkerson

This landscape painting workshop is for painters of all levels working in oils. This workshop is designed to meet the student where they are at and move them to the next level. Through hands-on exercises, demonstrations and painting itself, we’ll work on strategies that take some of the guess work out of painting. We’ll start with developing strong compositions and designs, then establishing compelling value patterns and lush color masses. We’ll work on painting wet-into-wet without dulling the colors, and finishing a painting in an afternoon using painting knives to speed up that process. Participants will be encouraged to work quickly and produce at least two paintings over the weekend. While photo references will be available, the park will provide many subjects close at hand. Students may choose to work outside directly from observation or work inside with a photo reference. The 9 hours of instruction include demos, short exercises, gentle group critiques, and, with a very limited enrollment, plenty of personal attention from the instructor. Instructional times: Friday night 7pm-8pm, Saturday 9am-4pm, Sunday 9am-noon Check in Friday after 4pm, Check out Sunday before noon. $499/person double occupancy, $675/person single occupancy
