Painting from Photographs

Painting from Photographs

Registration link

Do you have a beloved landscape or still life photo you would like to have as a painting?  Come to this workshop and learn how to translate photography into painting.  Please bring a few high-quality printed photos to choose from, or use my photo bank as inspiration.  In this class we will discuss how to create and choose images that translate well into a painting.  Photos work best that are composed well, and lit by one light source. Ann will present and demonstrate how to sketch, compose and adapt to the paint medium.  Not all photos translate gracefully into paint and the class will discuss what characteristics translate well.  Ann will bring a large selection of photographs to the workshop to choose from, if you don't have a favorite vacation picture to choose from.  Students may work in either acrylic or oil paints.  A kit for you use is available from the instructor for a $30 fee.
