Class Description

Many artists use only one photograph to make a painting, and then they paint every single detail as seen. They do not take the trouble to recompose and to leave out or add  in objects that will improve the overall composition. In this class we will take an uninteresting landscape and, using three other photographs,  make a reasonably interesting final painting. It is not intended to produce a masterpiece here but to demonstrate just how one can produce results with just a bit of imagination. It is more like a mini-workshop!

In this lesson you will learn:

1.  How to choose different phographs
2.  How to make cutouts
3.  How to arrange them
4.  How to use them for the final painting
