Peter Fiore

Landscape Painting: Beyond the Photograph

May 6 - 12, 2018

Medium: All Media Welcome

Level: All Levels

5-Day Mostly Indoor Class

Rates & Enrollment

Peter Fiore's five-day workshop teaches you how to fill your paintings with light and energy while using photography for reference. Learn how to interpret light, control color, key your paintings and create solid value structures so that you can achieve the specific feeling or mood that you are after. You will learn to redesign the elements of the photo to create a more dynamic and compelling painting. Demonstrations, painting exercises, critiques and discussion of materials, techniques, and common problems will all be a part of this workshop.

Class will be held indoors and students should bring 5-10 landscape photographs (5x7 or larger) to work from. Also, students should bring a digital camera. They will spend some time outside photographing and learning how to make solid reference.
