The Painterly Landscape
Each day Alain demonstrated a painterly approach to the landscape from start to finish, focusing on a unique subject and approach. Students responded with morning exercises to loosen up their work and learn techniques to simplify the subject. Students progressed to loosely finished landscape paintings by end of day. A constructive and encouraging group critique wrapped up the workshop.
