August 4th 3pm – 6.30pm  UK  London  15.00hrs – 18.30hrs

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 look at Drawing the eye to the focal point with simple techniques. 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.
