Composition in Landscape---Cody Wheelock, MVIS-S

Lee's Summit, MO  |  May 2, 2020  |  $99

Landscapes have been a beloved subject by artists for centuries.  That being said, they can also feel overwhelming to condense into a single painting.    This one-day workshop will cover basic compositional principles that will help make your next landscape painting a success.  Held both in-studio and outdoors “en plein air”, students will get a chance to try out some new ideas with the guidance of the instructor.  While not required, it is recommended students have some prior experience with plein air painting.  

Topics discussed include:
The five critical principles of composition
How to set yourself up for success
How to tackle composing a painting quickly for plein air situations
Creating a successful “entry” and “exit” for your painting
Tips for a successful plein air outing
Complete a plein air piece with the guidance of the instructor
Resources for further exploration

This is a small workshop with only six spots available; reserve your seat today!
