Landscape painting and rosemaling combine in this unique class. Paint an Os Fjord landscape or bring your own photo reference. A couple of days will be devoted to painting landscape followed by rosemaling an Os-style border on a custom 16" basswood plate. We'll talk about compositions, colors, and values. Jan will show you how to use oil paints without solvents.
