The art of landscape painting remains a popular genre for many contemporary painters. Landscapes still have the power to engage and provide a platform for creative invention. Some artists continue to paint from life, while many others rely on photos as an image source. This option provides more choice and selection and enables artists to be more spontaneous and imaginative in their painting practice. In this course, students will paint landscapes that combine observational painting with imaginary input. Working exclusively from photos, students will learn various techniques to alter or change their imagery before reproducing them in paint. Students can expect to execute between 6-8 paintings.
