Stylizing the Landscape

Bring vitality and atmosphere to your art.

Online Workshop with Andrea England February 19, 10am-12:15pm Pacific

Discover how to stylize landscapes and coastlines to capture how a place feels. Play with ink and watercolor to explore how exaggerating shape, line, and color can help you bring a sense of vitality and atmosphere to your art.

Andrea will show you how she simplifies the views she sketches and how she chooses what to include–and what to leave out. You’ll experiment with combining your own personality with the unique features of a place to create unique sketches, whether you’re working from photos and memories or creating on location.

            About Andrea

            Andrea England is a watercolour artist and sketcher based in Victoria, British Columbia. Her studio and home is a 36' sailboat, and much of her art is inspired by the coasts, forests and seas of the Pacific Northwest.

            Sketching underpins and inspires Andrea's professional art practice. Drawing and painting in her sketchbooks lets her create a unique record how a place feels as well as how it looks. Her sketches become a playground and laboratory where she can play with different approaches and techniques. Andrea believes that everybody is an artist inside, and we can all develop our own unique styles with a little exploration and a sense of adventure. She loves the way making art can bring us joy, as well as fostering a deeper sense of connection with our world as we slow down and really look at it.
