Color and Composition of the Landscape

2016 Joe Lombardo

Learn strategies for successful use of color and composition as applied to landscape painting. Day one’s focus is composition. Students will study design strategies and how to best apply them to the landscape. Moving to color on day two, students will learn to premix a harmonious palette and discover that a beautiful palette makes for a beautiful painting. Each day will begin with a lecture and demonstrations, and will be followed by group painting and individual instruction. This course is suitable for all experience levels. “Plein Air at the Farm,” offered Monday through Wednesday, July 11-13, is an excellent prerequisite for this workshop but not required.

Joseph Lombardo is an Adjunct Professor at the Columbus College of Art and Design. He received a MFA in painting from Bowling Green State University and a BFA from the Columbus College of Art and Design. Joe studied landscape painting at the Burren College of Art in Ireland and served as Artist In Residence at Buffalo National River, Hot Springs National Park, and at the Glen Arbor Arts Center. He won ‘Best in Show’ at the 2015 Ohio Plein Air Competition, and is represented by Art Access Gallery in Columbus. josephlombardo.weebly.com
