The Landscape Atelier

A New Graduate

We are so pleased to announce that Rob Wellings has completed his studies at The Landscape Atelier and graduates from the program this month! Rob completed the independent study portion of his program over the last 5 months. Below are a selection of his paintings and drawings.

Here is what he has to say:

” The paintings and drawings explore theme and process, material and technique. They were done using field studies, memory, and imagination. Some of the pieces utilize the imagination more, while others are directly from observation. Integrating these three approaches has been the greatest strength of the program for me.

In line with Thoreau, Proust writes that “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” I believe this is in many ways the purpose of all the hours spent observing, learning, and painting. I now have the confidence my work can continue on that voyage.”

Rob is represented by Williamsburg Gallery, Williamsburg, VA.  He has also shown work this year at the Philadelphia Sketch Club Annual Small Works show and at the National Art League’s Juried Exhibition in New York. Rob will also return to The Landscape Atelier next year as a teaching assistant. Congratulations Rob!
