In this course we will seek to understand the elements of landscape painting through methods of abstraction and simplification. We will begin by studying our motif on its simplest level to comprehend what we are truly seeing. We will focus on the key of our painting through study of the larger light structure, and practice methodically building our environment through its largest light and dark shapes. Oil paint is the preferred medium.
Jeremy Durling found his place in the artistic lineage of such outer cape painters as Charles Hawthorne and Edwin Dickinson when he began to study with Dickinson’s own student George Nick. Jeremy studied under Nick, as well as George’s former students Christopher Chippendale and Nancy McCarthy while earning his BFA at Massachusetts College of Art. He teaches at the New Hampshire Institute of Art and the Studio School at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education. He is represented by the Sloane Merrill Gallery in Boston, MA.
