“In nature, light creates the color. In the picture, color creates the light.” –Hans Hofmann

Recreating the effects of light has fascinated painters for centuries. This class will explore color strategies for creating light and luminosity in our abstracted landscape painting. We will focus on pulling imagery from the landscape to emphasize the formal aspects of painting – color, composition, movement, and space. Open to all oil and acrylic painters who are willing to let go, experiment and take chances!

Scott Gellatly holds a degree in painting and drawing from the University of Oregon and has exhibited his work in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States. A landscape painter at heart, Scott’s work has become more abstracted, with greater emphasis on pure color and gestural mark-making to evoke nature.

Scott is an Oregon native and lives in Portland with his family.
