Jon will guide students through methods he employs in his daily art practice to create edgy and unique illustrative landscape paintings. Unique to these teachings, Jon will provide students with a fresh skillset, that you can utilize in your own practice. He will guide you through these techniques in four components, taught over the two days. Each component is a building block for the next. In day one you will establish new methods of mixing colour and how to apply it in interesting ways to different surfaces. On day two, you go out into the landscape to create on-the-site illustrative paintings of our surroundings, integrating line drawing onto our painted surfaces. Finally, you will tie these images together through experimental layering to create your abtract piece.
Although this workshop is geared to those with painting experience, all experience levels are welcome. Please be in touch if you have questions.
