Let Iain guide you through his process, which relies on simplification of the subject through exploratory sketching and value studies.
After working on-site you will return to the studio, equipped with sketches and photographs, to begin a refined painting. Iain will demonstrate how to create a road map that can greatly improve your painting and provide you with a repeatable process involving carefully planned steps that you can use to paint any subject.
Use many of Madeline Island's iconic scenes as the starting point for the work created during the week, like the infamous Tom's Burned Down, right. Learn how to choose dynamic views, create a pleasing composition, and most importantly how to edit information that is not needed to tell a story in your painting. There will be plenty of one-on-one time with Iain, as well as individual and group critiques.
