JORDAN WOLFSON Landscape: Drawing as Source

a three-day painting workshop

June 4, 5, 6, 2018 .  Boulder, CO

This three-day workshop will explore the relationship between drawing and oil painting through the motif of landscape. How can drawing inform and enrich my painting practice? What is available through painting from drawings as opposed to directly from the motif itself? What may I discover about my way as a painter by experimenting through the practice of drawing? We will go out to the field for the first two days, experimenting with a variety of means and ways of drawing – pencil, charcoal, ink – slow and analytic, gestural and intuitive. The last day we will experiment with translating our drawings into paintings.
