COMPOSITION TO COMPLETION:  Creating Dynamic Paintings

from Photographs with INGRID CHRISTENSEN

This workshop will put you firmly in charge of your painting from the very first mark.  It will teach you to organize complex scenes into clear, coherent, and powerful paintings, and to execute them simply and logically.  

Concept and Composition:  You will learn to develop a concept, organize and manipulate your image, creating dynamic shapes and avoid detail, while exploring the basic abstraction.

Color and Value:  You will learn to overcome the drawbacks of color and value in photographs.

Suitable for oil and acrylic painters with some experience.
