Creating Dynamic Design From Photographs

3 Day Workshop – Calgary, AB
August 14-16th, 2015
Cost: $425

This 3 day course will cover important design considerations and introduce clear thought processes to launch from when working from photo reference. You will explore key concepts for seeing the potential in your photos, so that you can build on them to create strong, compelling paintings.

There will be several exercises designed to break you out of the “copying the photo idea”, providing you with several new approaches for your toolkit. In addition you will achieve greater clarity on what photos have potential and which are better left unpainted – and why.

This is a challenging workshop that will turn your ideas about working from photos upside down and take your confidence as a painter to the next level.

“Art is the transmittable, personal impression of one quality in the quantity before us. It is the ability to determine consciously what it is that interests him, and why, that differentiates the artist from the art student.” – John Carlson
