Evocative Landscapes – Real or Imagined
Sharon Barfoot
February 24 and 25, 2018, 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Price: $180

In this workshop we coax hints of reality and simplification of a landscape. We discuss how to control values and use of colour for emotional emphasis and how to suggest rather than delineate. Explore working intuitively and discuss finding balance, symbolic elements, metaphor and inspiration. Most importantly, play and have fun!
