As with most of Perry’s workshops, his primary goal is to encourage participants to approach landscape painting with an experimental attitude and the idea that, ‘It’s only ten bucks worth of materials. Have some fun. Colour outside the lines!’
That isn’t to say that painting doesn’t require some knowledge of the principles of design and some discipline to apply them. However, sometimes the anxiety of thinking we have to produce a ‘finished product’ often results in tight drawing, tight brushwork, and slavish attention to photo sources. Instead, let’s aim to challenge ourselves to ‘loosen up.’
