A three week class, exploring composition, colour and value, with gouache. Brian McPhee has over forty years experience painting landscapes in Canada ,the U.S and Scotland. Participants will work in gouache in small sketchbooks from a series of photos of their recent travels, or places of interest. They will be instructed in simple ways to reduce their compositions to 4 or 5 major shapes. Brian will assist in identifying what elements are dominant in the student’s photo: shape, value or colour and how to adjust or modify what is in the reference photo to make a more interesting image.

Gouache paints will then be used as the medium of expression as the student paints in a sketchbook no bigger than 8 x 10 inches.The smaller format helps keep the composition reduced to its simplest form.
