Most artists use source photos in some capacity when they work, whether to jog their memory of a particular place and time or to record specific visual details to incorporate in later pieces. In this workshop students will learn to paint in a creative, personal, and expressive way using reference photographs - freeing them from copying. Learn to dismiss the sense of obligation to show exactly what is depicted in the photo and feel free and inspired to manipulate the composition, assuring vitality and making the painting your personal creation. Bring several canvases and reference photos. A suggested materials list will be provided upon registration.
