Service Description

Many painters are over anxious to get a brush to the canvas and miss the pre-planning that gives them the strongest results. The course will stress strong composition and planning a bit more, including developing a simple sketch for composing and finding the best design in your references. We’ll examine reference material with a critical eye and find the best way to improve on them. Yes! we will be painting...lots! At the same time bringing a fresh look to their approach in finding the best compositions. Your final paintings will deliver a clarity and draw attention to the audience in the strongest possible way. We’ll strive to create a realistic sense of place rather than a photographic interpretation. We’ll bring attention to: finding the best photo reference. What to leave in, move or delete. Find the center of interest. Where are the leading lines? Where are the horizontal and vertical axes? What are the big shapes in your composition? Finding a hierarchy for a strong composition. Values and color, who wins?
