Landscapes are a powerful metaphor to express emotion in your art.  And understanding how to use color as you oil paint a landscape is so important to be able to communicate that emotion.

Acclaimed Portland artist, Jeff White paints in the romantic expressionist style, and is known for his magnificent, luminous landscapes and clouds that can be ethereal, brooding or tempestuous. With Jeff’s guidance, you will learn to free yourself so you can paint from the intuitive side of your brain, creating paintings that capture the essence of the spirit within you.  Along with teaching composition, color theory and atmosphere, Jeff will lead his students into the journey of painting and the joy of artful expression.

 From the underpainting to the finished product, Jeff will guide students in a step by step process to painting in smooth, colorful layers which create glowing mood and atmosphere. He will do demos so you can understand his process, from blocking in to the final strokes.

Perfect for advanced beginners to intermediate painters, students will learn Jeff’s techniques for creating colorful, powerful skies and landscapes.  Jeff’s warm and encouraging style of teaching is sought out throughout the Northwest.  Don’t miss this opportunity to learn with one of the best!
