Artist Elyse Dodge is known for her jewel-toned landscape paintings. She can take any mountainous landscape and transform it into a contemporary work of art using polygons. Her ability to break down the natural environment into geometric shapes is incredible, and now, she's ready to share all of her secrets with you in her new online painting class. In Acrylic Landscapes: Reimagining Mountains as Polygons, available on My Modern Met Academy, you'll follow her step by step through the process of creating your own canvas.
This intermediate painting class is now available for pre-sale before it launches on July 22, 2022. When you purchase the class during the pre-sale, you can save 10% by entering the code polygon10 at checkout. Then, once the class is released, you'll find it on your student dashboard and you can learn at your own pace.
In the class, Dodge takes us through the entire creation process, starting with how to select the perfect landscape inspiration and choosing a color palette. Before putting anything down on canvas, you'll work together on the computer to break your inspiration photo into the polygons that are the hallmark of Dodge's style. While she'll be using Adobe Illustrator, you can use any similar program or even take advantage of Adobe's free trial if you don't already have the software.
Dodge will then share her tips on the best acrylic paints and brushes to make your painting a success. From there, you'll see how you can transfer your image to the canvas and then watch as Dodge builds up the colors and forms using acrylics. In the end, you'll come away with your own mountain polygon painting.
“I created this course for anyone who wants to be an artist but is struggling to find their style or a medium to express themselves,” Dodge shares. “I but that the only difference between you and me is knowing how to use the tools.”
