Landscape Painting Master Class in Oils | Marie Mansfield

Course overview

This two day master class style workshop is for students with prior oil painting experience who would like to improve their painting skills. The focus of this two day workshop is painting tonally as it relates to painting landscapes en plein air (ie out in the field). Enjoy two days of working in the field at a nearby outdoor location. You will gain a solid understanding and observing tone and observing light – vital ingredients to improving your painting. With a good understanding of tone and light you can bring atmosphere, distance and mood into your landscape painting.

Please meet at Art Est. where you will do some preparation and Marie will give you an introduction to the course. The painting location will be advised prior to the workshop, however will be nearby to the studios and you will be able to walk or drive there. In the event of extreme or inclement weather, the workshop will take place in our air conditioned studios at Art Est.
