Course Overview

Extend your understanding of the landscape through the study of spatial illusion, composition, colour and mark-making. Idris Murphy guides you through the formal aspects of painting, with particular reference to contemporary landscape painting and the visual language that is critical to an understanding of painting. The course is suitable for students with prior painting experience and those who wish to better understand and evaluate their own work in the context of contemporary art practice. Students are encouraged to bring in artworks already in progress to revaluate, begin new paintings from photographs or drawings, and bring examples from books, magazines and websites of artists of interest and influence. Idris will present a series of brief lectures about landscape painting, with reference to his own works and vast collection of artists’ books. The course will include one-to-one mentoring as well as group critiques and discussions.
