5869 Painting from Photographs
Instructor: Mary Jean Canziani
Tuesdays, 9:30 AM–12 PM
Create better paintings from photographs! Rather than simply copying, learn to analyze and redesign images to produce a stronger composition. By sketching basic shapes and values, you can decide what to leave in and what to edit out. A focal point will be determined and design elements arranged to support it. Establishing a basic plan will give you more confidence when beginning your own painting, and, with a strong foundation, the details will sing even louder. You may work in their choice of paint media and bring your own or copyright free photos for reference.
