Portland Oregon Art Retreat
September 19-24, 2016
With Jennifer Thomson

Landscape Painting
Experience fall through five days of Art

Autumn’s clarity, light changes, coolness, earth’s aroma, signals an inner soul change from summer’s dreaminess to Michael’s wakefulness.

Mornings:  Veil painting: Let spaces of Blue, Gold, Orange & Red arise.  A hint of Green, shimmering.  In the periphery overlapping veils of yellow, red and blue die into grey, contrasting the light.  Add Black for weight and wakefulness.  Feel the release of light. As outer nature dies, an inner light appears in the autumn landscape.

Over 5 days, we will explore various artistic approaches to landscape painting.  Such as color moods, gestures, color relationships, compositional light & dark and inspirational exercises from artists of the past.
