Develop your eye in seeing and your hand in drawing by translating the landscape before you into strong compositions of the land, water, and sky.  In this 5-day workshop students will explore landscape vistas in the White Mountains of New Hampshire using primarily the language of line and drawing as they visually deconstruct the landscape.  Subjects will include mountains, water, gardens, woods and surrounding areas.  Students will be working on location in the mediums of ink, pencil, and watercolor on small-scale works.   Beginning with a focus on line-work and line-quality, students will develop refined value drawings of each site as they study different compositions.  During days 2 and 3 students will incorporate color and light as they see it to new drawings and paintings at the same locations.  A perfect workshop for those wanting to hone their skills in observational drawing, as well as seeing and depicting color relationships and shapes within the landscape.

Kathi Smith is a New England artist and educator. Smith’s work reflects her landscape, in which she invites close observation of familiar-seeming places and their narratives.
