At the Springfield Museum School:

The Elements of Landscape Painting

Zoom online workshop:
Tuesday, April 6 @ 10:00 am
3:00 pm
Robert Masla, A Distant View, (Mt Manadnock from Brown Rd.,   oil on canvas 24" x 36"

Landscapes can impress, inform and inspire us. The creative artist does not just replicate what they see, but seeks to capture and express their reaction to their experience. Join artist Robert Masla for this unique Zoom workshop as he shares with you over 40 years of painting and teaching experience in a relaxed and informative environment. Masla will lead you through paint-along demonstrations, revealing not just the various techniques on how to portray depth, light, value and atmosphere, but also how our individual emotional response connects to the landscape to convey a mood in our painting. Masla will explain the importance of understanding your intention and its influence on the planning of your composition and the execution of creating a successful landscape painting either in the studio or en plein air. Supply list, images and a Fredrix canvas panel provided. A Zoom link will be sent the day before the class.

Painting Watercolor on Watercolor Canvas

Zoom online workshop:
Wednesday, April 7 @ 10:00 am3:00 pm
Robert Masla, Entering the Market, (Essouria, Morocco)       12" x 9", watercolor on Fredrix watercolor canvas

Robert Masla will cover the various properties, stages, and methods of planning and executing a successful watercolor on watercolor canvas—from preparing the surface to preparation for display. Among many of its advantages, watercolor canvas allows the artist to “erase” the watercolor back to the white of the canvas, allowing for a “fearless” technique. Experience the unique properties of this special ground for watercolor—its versatility and its limits. Through a series of paint along demonstrations Masla will lead you in the creation of a watercolor on canvas. Supply list, images and a Fredrix canvas panel provided. A Zoom link will be sent the day before the class.
