Shifting Landscapes (The new aesthetic)

23rd - 27th October 2022

Tutor: Pete Monaghan

Places available

The monumental landscape of north west Highlands may seem daunting to represent, in this course we’ll investigate various possibilities for depiction. We’ll discuss the revised perception of landscape in our day and how that may influence our work.

Simple exercises will show us how to analyse and represent elements of landscape with man-made objects, including gates and stone walls, to aid representation of size and scale and the illusion of perspective.

Outdoors we’ll collate reference material in sketchbooks that will serve for ongoing mixed media work.

In the studio our painting may be enhanced by the use of collaged maps, cardboard, coffee cups and a plethora of other items both found and recycled; everyday materials that will initiate fresh ideas taking our work off on unsuspected tangents.

The emphasis will be on experimentation and garnering new techniques rather than producing finished work.
