My first classes of landscape were as if I picked up where I left off painting landscapes in my undergraduate studies. With expressionistic brushstrokes and the gesture of countryside, I venture off to more simplistic compositions that don’t fully detect landscape vistas but do give a sense of atmosphere. For my sustained studio project, I am analyzing JMW Turner’s Sun Setting Over a Lake and interpreting that onto a canvas.
