Over six weeks in June-July 2021 I attended an in-person landscape painting class at Woodmere Art Museum. We met each Friday for 3 hours and painted a scene from somewhere on the grounds.
Here’s another painting from the class for you to see.
Thank you to Marta, our instructor, and to all my classmates for a great experience.
In our second session, held in late June, I arrived a little early in order to choose a location (a practice I would continue for the rest of the sessions). I chose a grouping of trees along the edge of the front lawn – some were healthy and others not so much. I liked the look of the group – it was as if they were people assembled to wait for the bus, let’s say.
It was a very hot, very sunny day. There were harsh shadows and strong light. I tried to portray this feeling in my picture.
After this class I resolved to make sure I painted from a shady location from now on.
Here is the painting I did.
Woodmere Landscape Two, 6/21. 18 x 24, acrylics on Masonite.
