DEMONSTRATION – Landscapes in Oil/Acrylic – Keith Thirgood
Keith is a Canadian landscape artist working in the Canadian post impressionistic style. Keith creates painting “en plein air” when he can and in the studio the rest of the time.
Each year he runs art retreats for beginner to intermediate artists, people who are either already “plein air” painters or want to be mentored by experienced artists.
Keith’s own style is influenced by the Post Impressionists and the Canadian Group of Seven styles. In his paintings Keith engages techniques that simplify the visual chaos a live scene presents. In his workshop you will practice reducing the scene to values. Keith will start discussions of some of the practical aspects of plein air painting and learn some tricks for making the painting easier.
