David Dunlop‘s Tuesdays in March, 2024 Landscape Painting Workshops (March 12, 19 and 26, 2024 at 11:00AM EDT)

EXPLORE THE MAGIC OF LANDSCAPE PAINTING IN MARCH, 2024!  Starting in March, join Emmy® award winning acclaimed artist and teacher David Dunlop in his new series of 3 Tuesdays in March  Landscape Painting Workshops (March 12, 19 and 26, 2024 at 11:00AM EST – $150). We are continuing our experiment of basing each Workshop on specific Inspiration Photographs taken by David.

Explore New Skills and Meet Fellow Artists. This is a unique opportunity to continue to explore new skills and techniques, and to connect with fellow artists who share your passion. These Workshops are designed for artists of all levels, from beginners to experienced professionals.

Embark on an exciting journey of creativity. With his multi-disciplinary perspective, David combines art, history, philosophy, science, and technique to create a unique workshop experience that will leave you inspired and invigorated. David’s approach will challenge you to explore new ideas, subjects and compositions for landscape painting.

Format of the Workshops:

  • David will first explore other historic and contemporary paintings that refer to the specific topic based upon the Inspiration Photograph.
  • He will then paint a unique 1.5 hr. Painting Demonstration in oil and may incorporate different techniques of mixed media, using contemporary techniques and materials.
  • The 3 Tuesday Workshops will offer optional individual painting critiques for those who would like to submit their paintings. Your registration confirmation will provide the email address where you will send your painting the night below the Workshop only if you would like a critique.
  • You will receive a supply list of materials used by David before the Workshop.
  • You will have access to the recording of each Workshop to watch at your leisure.
  • You will receive a Zoom Link to join the Workshop in your registration email and in two additional emails before the Workshops.

These are the topics for the Three March Workshops:

  1. Wave Patterns and Rocks in Sunlight (March 12, 2024). In this landscape painting workshop, David will present historic precedents and compositions that explore different approaches to capturing wave patterns and rocks in sunlight. In his composition `examples that he draws at the beginning  and during his demonstration painting in oil, David will focus on techniques for creating foreshortening and plasticity of the waves at the shore as they encounter sunlit rocks. David will demonstrate the power of creating graphic abstract shapes using a palette of sun-kissed colors to paint interesting, animated detail and the complexity of water.
  2. A Romantic Scottish Garden and Stream (March 19, 2024). In this workshop, David explores the romance of a garden scene from a photograph captured during a tour of the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh. He first considers a brief survey of historic paintings and ideas of design as defined in late 18th and 19th century from Claude, Constable, and Ruskin and Capability Brown.  David then investigates different design possibilities to recompose the composition of the Garden and Stream. David will then demonstrate new and experimental techniques to create a sense of movement and play in the textures of garden and stream elements. David will explore – in a step-by-step process – different aspects of color theory, brush techniques, and composition for this unique landscape demonstration.
  3. A Spray of Spring Wildflowers at a Meadow’s Edge (March 26, 2024). In this workshop, David will explore how to create an intricate interplay of the close-up elements of a spray of spring wildflowers crowding together in sunlight on the fringes of wild farmland meadows. He examines and explores the techniques used by artists through time who have created landscapes that carry you through an intimate foreground into a distant landscape. David will demonstrate different techniques to create a vibrant, weaving mixture of textures and space which evoke the natural exuberance of a patch of wildflowers – a harbinger of Spring.
