Carol Tarzier offers Spring class on “Painting the Landscape from Photographs”

Bay Area artist Carol Tarzier’s class this Spring will continue by popular demand to focus on “Painting the Landscape from Photographs.” The series starts April 12 and runs through June 14..  Class meets on Fridays from 1 – 5 pm in Studio One.  Tuition for the ten 4-hour sessions is $200.
 
This series is about using your photographs to create fresh and lively landscapes with the energy and color of plein air work. The series covers color mixing and creating beautiful color tones with two types of limited palette: three primary colors and also a six-color palette with warm and cool primaries.  
 
The class will review materials and equipment that make painting fun, and you will learn how to use composition to create depth, how to create space using color and grays, how to create depth using hard and soft edges, and how to use saturation to create the feeling of space, using bright colors in the foreground and creating space and distance with grays.
 
Carol will also cover mixing colors for specific areas, such as in the sky as it moves toward the horizon, on a flat plane to make it recede into the distance, and to create a dynamic foreground.  The class will also will cover how to make water look transparent, how to paint waves and how to paint reflections.
