Date: Tuesdays, January 11-February 1, 2022
Time:  11:00 AM-1:30 PM Pacific Time (2:00-4:30 PM Eastern Time/7:00-9:30 PM London Time)
Level: All
Medium: Oil or acrylic

Painting the landscape is exhilarating, whether it is in the countryside, your neighborhood, or within a city. Regardless of location, there is always a lot of information, and this can be overwhelming. Join Amy in a four session workshop that helps participants find the focal point of a natural view, engage major shapes in order to tame the details, and work with a color palette that encourages colors outside of green! Amy will present demonstrations based on landscapes documented by phone camera. Participants can use these landscapes, but are encouraged to also find views nearby and use these for class assignments. Amy will be working in oil, but acrylic, watercolor, and pastel artists are welcome to participate.

    • Class 1: Finding a Focus Class
    • 2: Major Shapes
    • Class 3: Everything is Green!
    • Class 4: Color Expression


Amy Brnger has painted still life, flowers, and landscape for as long as she has been an artist. She uses nature as a vehicle, or an excuse, to paint, and enjoys painting places and things with and about which she is familiar or curious. With her interiors, still life and landscape are often paired together, as both influence one another equally.  These subjects are strongly related, since the kinds of still life objects she often chooses to paint are themselves directly derived from the landscape: flowers; leaves; fruits and vegetables; bird’s nests, etc. She also enjoys painting flowers and food on their own.
