Deborah Quinn-Munson:  Design and Composition Two-Day
Workshop:  October 24 and 25, 2016, Orleans, MA

Design for Dramatic Landscapes, Whatever Your Medium

Composition and design are the focus of this two-day workshop. Working with large shapes -- massing, value, and edges -- we will explore design principles such as the rule of thirds, the Golden Mean, and ”80/20” guidelines for packing a punch in your landscape paintings.  Demos will illustrate emphasis on shape and design.  A series of studies will be followed by development of a unified work using these compositional approaches. Lots of hands on attention.

Dates:  Monday and Tuesday, October 24 and 25, 2016

Time:  9:30 to 4:00
