A challenge for many painters is learning how to edit or how to simplify the landscape into a few basic shapes and values. Learn how to express the essence of a scene by editing the details into simple abstract shapes and using bold brush strokes to build your landscape. We will be using a limited color palette to build a pleasing landscape. Students will leave with several small studies of the area around beautiful Cannon Beach. Demonstration and individual attention leads to success.
Class size limited to 8 artists. $185 for both days.

As evening approached I began looking for the right place to enjoy the last few minutes of daylight. No surprise, I ended up down at the water’s edge.
These slender basalt seastacks are known as “The Needles” and though they are small compared to their neighbor (Haystack Rock) they are impressive just the same. As you walk closer, their size and the abundance of life that calls them home becomes evident.
