Capture the atmosphere and the wave
March 1-3, 2019
9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Returning to high demand! This amazing studio seascape painting workshop will yield several waves and exciting seascapes over a 3 day period. Class will cover the basic principles of oil painting with regard to seascape painting. Discussions and lectures on basic composition, massing, building form, light and shadow, near and far, capturing and developing atmospheric distance and depending on your own style, knowing when a work is finished (learning how to not overwork you painting). Students will work in their own style/technique so that the finished
work is their own. Douglas will overview his palette and concepts his work entails. After a brief morning intro and adequate time to mix and set up the palette, Douglas will demo a seascape and have the class follow along. Much time will be allowed for individual discussion and review in a systematic rotation. The second day we meet at the beach to discuss
the anatomy of a wave and take some photos and do some sketches. Bring a coffee and plan to spend an hour there to get some reference for your file and to better understand the rhythm of the ocean and the crashing wave. Various seascapes will be painted over the 3 day workshop and some incredible paintings will be accomplished. Depending on the skill level of each student, students are able to grow and develop at a rate that is to their comfort. Demos and individual discussions/instruction will help each student to begin to reach the preliminary
goals they are striving to meet. Plan to produce several paintings. Plan to bring notebook/sketchbook and enjoy some demos along with some great stories to help you remember these principles that are the foundation of Douglas’ teaching.
