Painting Landscapes from Photographs
In this workshop, students will paint a landscape in the studio using photographs. The goal will be to create simple designs that have a strong foundation and a well thought out composition. Students will learn to create a feeling of the landscape that gives the painting life, instead of just copying a photograph. Linda will discuss how to paint from your focal point out while paying attention to values, composition and edges. This workshop will include instructor demonstrations and plenty of individual attention. The past workshops students have been very inspired by the amount of photographs supplied by Linda, which include subject matter from Grand Canyon, desert vistas, interior forest and the high mountain scenes.
