Rugged and wild, Northwest landscapes, especially those near the coast, provide ranges of color, texture, and atmosphere for painters. From the Sol Duc river to the hauntingly beautiful Cedar Creek river which leads to the ocean, the mood and mystery of the landscape can be captured through lost edges, a cool palette, and a variety of brush and palette knife work.
Join Mike Wise as he shared the secrets of creating paintings with mood and atmosphere. He will cover color mixing, paint application with brushes, knives and silicone shapers, and more!

Oil Colors – Good quality professional brand such as Gamblin or M. Graham.
Note: Mike is very excited about M. Graham paints. If you would like them, ARTspot can order them as long as they have ample notice.
Suggested, optional colors (Mike uses the rest of these regularly, however not all will be needed for the class):
Panels or stretched canvas:
IMPORTANT: Make sure your canvases have a good priming - either buy the Source Tek canvas (which are highly pre-primed) or, if you select a different brand, make sure they have an additional coat of gesso for the priming. (Priming allows the paint to adhere to the surface.)
*Note on Mike's choice of Source Tek canvas panels: these are artist quality linen panels. This superior surface quality is one way that Mike is able to get the results he wants. (We have worked with ARTspot on this, and they have Source Tek canvas panels in a variety of sizes on a special 20% off right now for this workshop. They are panels, so they have minimal depth of 1/8", which makes them more economical than the thicker panels.)
