Students should have previous experience with acrylics
Whether it's "From the Prairies...or to the West Coast", landscapes are one of Susan's favourite subjects to paint.
Susan has organized this workshop into two days, giving the student time to absorb the information, and relax while enjoying the process.
Ready: Composition is key to designing a landscape. Using a slide presentation, Susan will discuss what works and what doesn’t and how to avoid obvious mistakes.
Aim: Planning and simplifying the design makes for an easy and positive transition to canvas. We will work with simple designs and then tonal studies to flush out on some of the kinks. As one of Susan's instructors told her. "If it doesn't work on paper, it's not going to work on canvas.,"
Fire: Execution - let's put it all together on canvas. Starting slowly, one layer at a time, Susan will show you the process of gentle layers of paint while bringing your work to completion.
Susan has been painting with acrylics for over 20 years and has taken 40+ workshops from some of Canada’s finest artists. She is generous in sharing her techniques, tips and tricks that she has picked up along the way. Her students describe her as “organized and very encouraging with positive critiques. Susan is a supportive instructor patient and fun.”
