Landscape Essentials with Doug Swinton (3 DAY WORKSHOP)
Instructor: DOUG SWINTON
September 28th-30th
(Friday 6-9pm, Saturday 9am-4pm, Sunday 12-4pm)
All Saints Anglican Church, 1801 Lorne Avenue
$300.00 plus tax
Oil and acrylic painters welcome

Join Doug Swinton as he takes you through the 5 elements that go into a well-conceived landscape painting. From choosing colours, maximizing mixing potential, to surefire compositional strategies, Doug will show you how to achieve these and much more.

Having a strong “blueprint” for your painting makes the execution of that painting way more fun to do! Doug will discuss how to pick good subjects to paint, what makes a good photo, and when to quit before it’s overworked. These are just a few of the topics you will gain insight into.

“There is no such thing as a good painting about nothing.”

This saying has been attributed to a number of artists, Mark Rothko among them. How does a painter get past the stages of aimless play and ‘interesting’ designs? In this hands-on studio class we will explore methods for giving a direction to our play and a compelling reason for our designs, including techniques for sustaining a prolonged research project and ideas for assessing progress.

AnneKim Ennis was born in Saskatoon in 1956. Drawing and painting independently until 1980 he then became a protégé of the late W.H. Epp and worked mainly in bronze, stone and wood for the next two decades. In 2009 he completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting) with Great Distinction at the University of Saskatchewan. He completed a Special Case Master of Arts in Art History in 2012, with his thesis on spiritual aspects of Saskatchewan painting.
