This 3.5 hour-long Live Zoom class includes instruction, demonstration, and question + answer time. It will help you interpret photographs and help you to see what is needed to turn a photo into a painting. Looking at light and composition to develop into something amazing rather than ordinary.

We will explore Atmospheric photographs and look at interpretation. We will also cover Composition, Values, Colour Temperatures, Recession, Depth of Field and Movement.

We are going to create in underpainting, then pastel, then paint, then pastel, then paint, then pastel to create a masterpiece.

Students will need, for each class:

  • Pencil 4B and sketching paper
  • I suggest a few Pastel Pencils for the detail. I have a Very Dark Blue, and Dark Violet, Black, Dark Brown. Any Darks great
  • Students will need  1 sheet of  300gsm pre stretched Watercolour Not Paper. Moulin Du Roy, Arches or similar.  The SAA practice paper is OK to use and relatively cheap. 
  • Printouts of reference material. (sent to registered students)
