This course will emphasize composition and planning of landscape oil painting, placing a greater emphasis on initial development through a simple sketch followed by a small drawing. This approach focuses on identifying the key elements and establishing the overall structure before applying brush to canvas. Many painters tend to rush this phase, missing out on crucial pre-painting planning that ultimately leads to stronger results. The class will closely analyze their chosen reference materials, whether they be photos or other sources. This critical examination will help us identify areas for improvement, ensuring that their paintings possess a clarity that captivates the audience in the most impactful way possible.

About the Instructor: Tony Andrade
I make images with paint, paper, canvas and cameras. I enjoy non-representational approaches as well as realist work. I began my career as an illustrator then switched to graphic design, and started my own studio in the late 70s. The majority of my career I worked with clients as an art director & designer. In working with many photographers and freelance illustrators creating annual reports, brochures and many various allied pieces. I became intrigued with the art-making process • I began making art and photography for relaxation in the mid 80s. I try to find inspiration whenever and wherever life occurs. It can inspire you in the most profound ways. My art evolves constantly from intricately detailed watercolors to light and bright abstractions, to special effects digital works in photography. When I start a new piece I want it to take me to new places, it’s what I find so appealing in making my art.
