Dave exposes a fresh approach to landscape painting by deconstructing a scene in order to analyze the atmospheric structure before ever beginning to paint! He’ll show you how to use this newfound information on each atmospheric plane of your painting.
By using the techniques Dave has mastered, you’ll begin to see how color relationships — chroma and value — play into your work. You’ll also discover how to use gray to enhance your paintings … a counterintuitive method.
This course is designed for all skill levels, and you’re going to have many aha moments as Dave adjusts his reference image to isolate specific shadows and shapes as they become obviously warmer and darker. These four simple gradations of shadows will become the structure for the entire painting.
“Dave Santillines is organized, soft spoken, encouraging,
and a wonderful artist. He actually made me believe I can paint! His use of the color grey was novel and very helpful. This is one of the best courses I have taken. Thank you!”
