The sea is close by and a timeless source of inspiration for artists. We will be looking at the history of seascape painting to help discover various techniques and compositional ideas. A few artists we will focus on are Turner, Monet, Homer, Woodbury, Henri, Porter, Laurent and Hopper among others. There will be in-class demonstrations; a focus on different techniques of painting water; tackling formal and design issues; discussion of the use of sketches and photographs. A specific area of concern will be color, trying to capture water at different times of day and in different settings ( i.e. open ocean, sandbars, low tidal areas, coves, waves, islands and shoals.) Beginners are welcome. Oil and Acrylic, but will welcome Watercolor. Bring canvases to work on, several would be preferable. Canvas boards recommended 11 X 14, 16 X 20, or larger if you are feeling ambitious! Gessoed hardboard or MDF works as well. Gamsol is the only thinner used at Sanctuary Arts.
