Dynamic Composition Simply Done
Two Day Workshop – Fee $195
This simple process will change your paintings and your perceptions
This workshop is for anyone who wants to learn a simple process to strengthen their paintings.
What you’ll learn in this workshop:
This workshop will teach you the simple process and simple principles for a tried and true method of composition. In the process, you will learn to see and objectively critique your own work.
“It’s all abstraction” – We’ll begin by covering the simple process and rules for creating an abstract composition from a group of simple non-objective shapes. This process will also begin to change our impulses toward literalism. We’ll work from less successful paintings, using the process to design new, dynamic work.
We’ll progress to color studies where we’ll of convert value into color – no small task!
We’ll work exclusively with compositions at about postcard size using pencil and watercolor. We’ll start by looking at some less successful paintings and then to applying this process when working from sketches and photos. Artists working in any medium are welcome since this process and principles apply to all.
