This is the perfect course if you would like to be able to work from photos in an atmospheric and expressive way. This five day course will cover creating atmospheric oil paintings from photographs of landscapes or interiors. We will begin with a day of drawing from observation to focus on making making and surface. We will then begin to work from photos using a reduced palette and negative space to create a series of compositions. We will then explore the expressive power of colour before scaling up for the final two days. This course requires some previous experience of painting.
