Why you should start with landscape painting?

  • Landscape, land, earth is the place where we come from, where we live and spend our entire life on.
  • Regardless of whether you paint a landscape from a photography or out in the nature, you begin to see the landscape through more sensitive eyes. You begin to appreciate the place as it is, spend more time in the fresh air and begin to see with the heart of a painter.
  • By looking at the landscape you're painting, you'll begin to love it. The world that you  observing and spend time translating into painting will always remain in your memories and on the canvas recorded by your brush strokes.
  • Painting the landscape has usually calming effect because landscape doesn't hurry, landscape just exists and you come to it as an observer.

 

 

Landscape painting has a long tradition in the visual art. Already in the late Gothic style paintings we can see the interest of various artists in landscape painting, especially in early Netherlandish painting of Jan van Eyck, Hieronymus Bosch and Albrecht Altdorfer. In the Renaissance, landscape often appears on the paintings in the form of idealized landscapes. Landscape painting in today's sense was developed in the Baroque period. In the 19th century there were well known European landscape painters like William Turner and Caspar David Friedrich, as well as Bohemian painters like Antonín Chittussi, Julius Mařák, Antonín Slavíček etc.… Impressionist painters shared an interest in painting landscape in the open air.

 

During the landscape painting course each participant will get familiar with the principles of landscape painting in the studio and painting landscapes in the country – in the open air. Moreover, everyone will learn how to stretch their own canvas over a frame and learn to apply an isolation coat and varnish on it correctly. Students will get familiar with various tools, different types of paint techniques and basic principles of classic and modern oil painting. During the course, your lecturer will introduce to you a variety of tips and tricks for having a pleasant experience of landscape painting.
