Panoramic Landscapes


If you like a sense of openness and tranquility in landscapes, paint them in panoramic sizes. In this workshop we’ll create 2 landscapes paintings in unusual panoramic sizes. In the process you will learn how to:

• Create compelling compositions using repeated shapes
• Create flow, rhythm, and narrative in landscapes
• Vary brushstrokes to describe different objects in landscapes
• Balance detail, soft edges, and hard edges to create realism and depth in landscapes
• Mix and balance muted and saturated colors.

In addition to the painting demos, there will be demos on the process of how to create a good composition using pencil and tracing paper before starting the painting. Students can use the provided photo reference or use their own reference. Panoramic size panels and frames are available for purchase from Wayne.

Both online and in person workshops will include painting demos, student work feedback sessions, slideshow presentations, and eye training exercises. These combinations of activities are designed to help refine your painting techniques and observation skills. Photo references will be provided for all painting assignments. Students are welcome to bring their own photo references for their own paintings.

In person workshops will have extended painting sessions. During these sessions, students will get one-on-one mentoring from Wayne.

Online workshop students will have access to download a video file of the painting demo to refer to so they can paint along at home at their own pace. There will be critiques at the beginning of some of the classes.

Online workshop students are responsible for knowing how to:
