Seeing and inventing new ideas to make your painting stand out.
What is our goal? To Capture a scene that you have passed a million times and hopefully make an exciting painting from that scene. We will always work with design first and then see how we can turn those many greens into something exciting. We will go over how NOT to copy exactly what is in front of you. You can move things around – change colors, change lighting and learn to introduce anything that is going to make your painting stand out. Color harmony, composition, inventiveness, texture with lots of paint…all will help make a great painting.
