This course will seek to interpret the landscape through methods of abstraction and simplification. We will begin by reducing our motif to its foundational light structure. We will focus on setting the key of our painting, while methodically developing color relationships. We will discuss the mechanics of traveling light and the importance of an adaptive painting practice, including an array of working methods that may allow us to build a cohesive painting in the face of shimmering and fugitive atmospheric elements.
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.
