RIVER TREE ARTS ONE-DAY OIL PAINTING WORKSHOP WITH DAN GRAZIANO
Painting From Photo Reference
The workshop will discuss techniques to quickly transfer the important elements of a reference photo to the canvas, as well as creating an artistic painting rather than simply rendering a photograph. Beginning with a discussion on the “basics” of oil painting (from materials to paint handling), the workshop will also address the fundamentals of color, value, edges and perspective. Learn how to use a reference photo and create a loose, expressive and “painterly” painting!
Instruction will include a short painting demo by Dan, with explanation of his process along the way. Participants will then work from their own photo references incorporating the techniques discussed, with plenty of one-on-one individual instruction throughout the day. Participants must provide their own materials.
Workshop fee is $95.00 ($85.00 for River Tree Arts members).
