Abstracting the Landscape
[ Workshop )
Discover how Hitchens painted his abstract landscapes, then create your own.
Artist Melanie Rose creates abstract landscapes inspired by Ivon Hitchens, using the ancient egg tempera medium. In this class we will explore how Hitchens constructs his landscape paintings before learning the egg tempera medium and using it to create our own abstract landscapes. You will be given ready prepared gessoed surfaces to paint onto and guidance on how to make and apply egg tempera.
