Composition Workshop on Saturday August 16th

,
If you're in the LA area and would like to refine your composition and painting skills, you're welcome to join me for an upcoming event.


On Saturday August 16th I'll be giving a workshop on pictorial composition for subjects of all kinds including landscape, figurative and entertainment design. Here's what we'll cover:
  • Lectures on the fundamentals of effective picture making.
  • Discussions on the creation of mood and environment.
  • Principles for organizing complex scenes into pleasing arrangements.
  • Strategies for solving compositional problems quickly and effectively.
  • Composition exploration exercises.
  • Painting from a costumed model.
We'll spend the morning with slide shows and lectures and spend the afternoon doing the compositional exercises and studies from a costumed model.

To enroll contact the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art at 877 LA-Atelier. Their site is www.laafa.org.

Hope to see you soon.
