TWO DAY WORKSHOP with Ann Willsie
This workshop is designed for beginners and intermediate students - all mediums welcome. Ann will be working in oils
This workshop will focus on composition, structure and design of your landscape. Before a painting is even begun, decisions have to be made about the overall design. Some of these decisions include:
Each morning will start with a brief discussion of the above subject matters, followed by exercises designed to help you think about the composition before starting. I will be doing short demos throughout the day, as well as helping each individual with their painting on a one-on-one basis.
You will be asked to bring your own reference photos and we will spend some time going over them prior to painting.
