The focus of this class will be making the vertical surface of your canvas read as a horizontal surface. Using a process Mike calls "in-front-of-ness" and standard tricks such as converging lines and atmospheric effects, Mike will show how he creates depth in a painting.
All materials are included in this class. Mike will provide the use of a sealable palette, Golden Open Acrylics, an array of brushes, an 11x14 canvas board and source material. Students can keep the canvas board with the option to purchase the palette, loaded paints and brushes at the end of class for $40.
Hundreds of Mike's photos from Northern Michigan can be chosen to use as reference or, with advance permission, you can use your own reference photo.
