In this mini class we’ll make landscape paintings outside that are finished in one session. The French call these sorts of paintings “premier coups” or one-shots.
During the class we will talk about the mechanics of covering a canvas quickly and building a strong design from the ground up. We will explore how to find clarity within a sense of urgency. One-shots leave no time for over-thinking so making them can be a good way for a painter to get in touch with their gut instincts and sense of fun.
