Has your spirit ever been elevated to new heights by listening to great music or by being witness to a wondrous landscape and wishing you could create that beauty by painting? Well you can, and some of the great American and French Impressionists and Tonalist painters did just that. In these classes we will discover the techniques they used to make their paintings the great master works that have stood the test of time.
Instructor demonstrations and critiques will teach students how to create different levels of distance within their plein air or photographed landscapes using color, perspective, detail and thoughtfully developed compositions practicing and exploring various techniques with individualized advice and focused direction from the instructor.
Students will complete this workshop with a finished painting or paintings.

ARTIST STATEMENT / BIO:
Douglas House: Throughout my painting years, I have been strongly influenced by the French and American Impressionists, the Barbizon School of painters and American Expressionists. I am fascinated by their use of light, paint value and color to create mood, mystery and expression.
For the past number of years I have focused my landscape paintings around the national forests, parks and scenes of the Minnesota and Wisconsin Great Lakes area and the Canadian Border Parks. These areas have provided me with an endless supply of artistic inspiration and profound spiritual meaning, for personal insights and development.
It is my goal in painting, to renew with myself and my viewer, the soulful mystery and beauty we are all so familiar with and of which we are all a part.
