Power of Positive Painting
- Landscape Painting Workshop with Robert Maniscalco
- The next workshop will be at TBA on January 21, 2023.
In these sessions we will explore value-based “light on form” painting methods.
Landscapes From Photos One-day Workshop
Robert will teach you to think and analyze photographs like a painter. He will present a short drawing/painting lesson at the beginning of the workshop. The focus will be on understanding how value can be used to create a sense of where the sun is (or isn’t), what time of day it is, what is the humidity and temperature. In other words, to create a convincing sense of the place. Students may work in any opaque medium (oils, acrylic, guache, pastel) and any subject – bring a couple options. Robert will provide/suggest reference material as necessary. We will set goals together but will tailor the work to the individual needs of the student. Goals can be as broad as becoming comfortable with a media or an idiom, in this case, landscape. Or they can be as specific as learning to develop a greater variety of edges in oil painting. Honest observation of value will be key. Understanding the limitations of photography and how to analyze it to make it seem as if it were painted au plein air. The instruction will be tailored to allow for a deepening of the individual’s unique approach and response to the project at hand.
