Throughout time, masters have sought ways to realize their imagination and ideas while attaining an increasingly accurate observation of life. Learn modern master techniques to give you the most creative freedom in your studio. Leonardo, Michelangelo, Dürer, Sargent, Eakins and many others used visual references and specific techniques for transferring life accurately onto their final surface. Throughout time, that process has changed.
With all the available technical devices, we have an ever expanding amount of tools available to us. When properly used, photography and Photoshop enable us to use technology without compromising the benefits of working directly from life.
This course will begin with digital photography and move into how to prepare those images for painting. We will review how to adjust color, balance between light, dark and mid-tones, vary backgrounds, alter details and many other subtle adjustments.
