Dan Graziano’s Painting from Photo Reference workshop will discuss techniques to quickly transfer the important elements of a reference photo to the canvas, as well as creating an artistic painting rather than simply rendering a photograph. Beginning with a discussion on the “basics” of oil painting (from materials to paint handling), the workshop will also address the fundamentals of color, value, edges, and perspective. Students will learn to use a reference photo to create a loose, expressive, and “painterly” painting!
Instruction will include a short painting demonstration by Dan, with an explanation of his process along the way. Participants will then work from their own photo references, incorporating the techniques discussed, with plenty of one-on-one, individual instruction throughout the day.
Open to all levels.
