Enough stress cannot be laid upon the importance of memory work.
– John F. Carlson
In landscape painting, especially, the need for something more than common place-is truths. Mood is the prime differentiating quality between a sketch and a painting. A painter who has learned something of the craft of painting should first contemplate a subject with the intention of rendering the impression in paint.
Two sessions will occupy our time. In the first we will take your reference and render a sketch in black & white, then we make the observation of the subject for a period of time. After which the reference will be rendered obsolete. From that mark in time we will journey in the essence or the impression of the subject in which we will have a completed painting.
Mr. Nichols will provide one-on-one instruction to each student as well as critiques helping you find out exactly why that piece isn’t working.
