How do we make, view and market art? What subconscious psychological processes are in play when we make art, while we look at art, and how we decide to buy art? What are the forces and circumstances that subliminally direct our intentions and determine our responses to art. David Dunlop’s reputation as a painter who combines artistic skill, knowledge and enthusiasm prompted the Metropolitan Museum of Art to invite him to lecture on 4000 years of landscape painting in 2005. He has been a visiting artist/lecturer at multiple institutions. His PBS program on Cezanne was included in the exhibit Cezanne and American Modernism at the Montclair Art Museum.

THE WEST HARTFORD ART LEAGUE | 37 BUENA VISTA RD WEST HARTFORD CT 06107 | (860) 231-8019
Skill Level: All levels welcome | Participants can use watercolor, oil, acrylic or mixed media
Day One: Where do we get our ideas of landscape painting? What are the criteria and how are criteria changing? How do you design, draw, and paint a romantic 19 century landscape picture? We start with historic ideas and methods. We reach back to the 17th century landscape painters from Holland and Italy. We learn (through demonstration) how they sketched, composed and painted. Here artists grasp the conventions and models of landscape painting as they influence us now and influenced Hudson River painters like Church and Gifford.  We consider their ideas, palettes, brushwork and methods.  I will demonstrate a variety of their techniques and how they use the strategies of English landscape painters like JMW Turner. We examine applied color theory for these artists, their palettes and tools in the demonstration.
Day Two: The subject is contemporary landscape painting. History begins here in the late 19th century with the blurred dream landscapes of George Inness, the Barbizon tonal landscapes of Corot and the subsequent Impressionists. Quickly we move into Cezanne’s ideas on the biology of vision as united with the history of art in landscapes.  From here we look to the evolution toward abstracting the landscape with expressive color and gestures. We move through the 20th century with the distilled distorted landscapes of artist like Diebenkorn and Thiebaud. How did they redesign and color their paintings?  I will demonstrate new tools (squeegees, brayers and blowers), materials and techniques of 21st-century landscape painters. The demonstrations also focuses on the influence and use of software like Photoshop in landscape painting and includes new substrates like enameled brush silver aluminum or the effects of over painting digitally printed material. David will provide individual instruction oil, watercolor and acrylics.
