Landscape Oil Painting Class

February 4, 2020 @ 9:30 am - March 24, 2020 @ 12:30 pm

With Artist John Gamache

In this 8-week class, beginner and intermediate students will learn how to paint an oil landscape using photographs as a reference from start to finish.

Class format will consist of demonstration, group and individual instruction with a focus on color mixing, brush techniques, composition, focal point, and perspective. Students will gain an understanding of oil painting techniques and discover how to bring their inner feelings and individual artistic vision to the canvas. Photographs are used only as a starting point and John will teach you how to embellish the scene with color, lighting and by adding other elements to personalize the image.

About the Artist:

John’s early training was completed at the Swain School of Design in New

John Gamache, Self Portrait, Oil on Linen

Bedford, Massachusetts and at Southeastern Massachusetts University. He spent many years after working as a freelance illustrator and designer for advertising agencies, publishing companies, and corporations. Within the last several years he has returned to fine art, showing his personal works to the public. He considers his artistic schooling to have been “intensely” classical, and acknowledges that the creation of art is intertwined with his life.

John works in a traditional style of painting, but is unconventional in the application and type of surface materials he uses in some of his works. His current body of work utilizes this style to create fascinating pieces reminiscent of his past artistic influences.
