Barb Sohn is an elected member of the Canadian Society of Artists, the Federation of Canadian artists and the Ontario Society of Artists.  She is represented by two galleries, and her work is in collections around the world.

She works to “capture the mesmerizing qualities of water and landscape on canvas”, in acrylics.

Here is what Barb has to say about this class.  “It is designed to introduce students to techniques for planning and developing a strong landscape painting in paint.  It is designed for any artist who is interested in my intuitive approach to interpreting landscape and water.”

Class Description

We will begin with a review of the fundamentals of composition and values, using a reference photo of the student’s choice.  Bring a selection of photos.  As you learn about composition, you may wish to choose another photo.  Keep in mind that I will probably be demonstrating paintings involving rocks, trees and water!

We will develop the composition of your painting through a series of exercises, working it up into a full-sized painting.

I will demonstrate at the start of each class and throughout the class to explain colour choices and other topics.  We will view a slide show of various artists, who in their work, demonstrate the theme of the day.

We will end with a final critique and discussion of the paintings done in class.

Demos will be done in acrylics.  Every class is different, since my courses are always student driven.  The chance to spend extended time with a small group of students will allow us to delve into each person’s own artistic exploration.  I help my students to better understand and articulate their own unique visual language.”

Bring several large reference photos of landscapes that you would like to paint.  Ideally, it is a photo that you took yourself, so that you have a connection to the site.  If you don’t have an inspiring photo, I have many.
