About the Event

What goes into making a strong landscape? How do we simplify the vast complexity of nature into a convincing painting? Learn from award winning, internationally-acclaimed artist David Goatley who will cover topics including composition, looking for a strong motif, and building a picture literally from the ground up. If the weather is fine, we’ll even venture outside and paint en plein air. If it isn’t, we’ll work with photographs indoors. Participants bring their own materials, and can choose to work with either acrylics or oil paints.

Recommended Materials List (You May Work in Oil or Acrylic, as Per Your Preference):

  • A free-standing easel
  • A palette (the largest paper tear-off palettes are good)
  • Pots for medium
  • Odourless mineral  spirits (if using non-watersoluble oil)
  • Small Liquin (for regular oils) or Quick Dry Medium (for water-soluble oil)
  • Oil paints or acrylic paints (your preference): Titanium White, Cadmium Yellow Pale, Naples Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Yellow Deep, Cadmium Red Light, Burnt Sienna, Permanent Rose or Alizarin Crimson, Cerulean Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt Blue, Viridian Green, Sap Green, Raw Umber, Ivory Black, Light Red or Terra Rosa
  • Suitable brushes - hogs hair or synthetics – from a good small (size 2) brush up to a large brush (about an inch across). Also, a small round brush for fine detail.
  • A stick or two of willow charcoal
