Start to Finish: 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.
Working from your own photos, you'll learn how to develop a concept and then simplify, organize, and manipulate your images to convey it. You'll discover how to create dynamic shapes and avoiding excessive detail, all the while exploring the basic abstraction that lies at the heart of every successful painting.
Next, you'll develop your paintings using a shape-based approach, and working wet-in-wet. You'll learn to layer without making mud, and to use brushwork in a loose yet accurate way, to convey the essentials of your scene.
This workshop is suitable for oil and acrylic painters with some experience. Ingrid's demos will be in oil.
