Buildings and structures in the landscape add interest, variety, and help tell a story. Nancy shares how to compose, simplify, and seamlessly incorporate structures using underpainting techniques, abstract shapes, shadow and light patterns, texture, and perspective, to enhance your landscape paintings.

Nancy’s demos will include discussion on materials, composition, value studies, color temperatures and color harmony, importance of simplifying, massing, underpainting, and discussion on what makes a successful painting. 

"For me, it’s all about creating. It’s being attuned to the inspiration that nature provides, and intuitively, patiently, and creatively, letting go and seeing where that leads. Color and light are what inspires me. It is an ongoing endeavor to capture it artistically yet technically and to bring out the spirit of my subjects using the glorious medium of pastels."

Nancy Nowak, PSA, IAPS-MC
