Saturday One Day Workshop Series: #5 Interpreting A Photo

  • David Lussier Gallery 156 River Rd. Willington CT, 06281 United States (map)

With digital photography at our fingertips, the landscape painter of today can certainly take advantage of the ease with which he can gather reference photos to work from back in the studio. For a painter, a photo is a good memory and a useful tool to start from, but the camera is not able to capture what our eyes are capable of seeing and what are hearts are capable of feeling. In this one day workshop come explore how to interpret a photo based on the truth found in nature and learn how to fill your paintings with light and atmosphere.

We are going to work with our full color harmony palette. This is suitable for those students who haven' t worked with us before as an introduction to our palette and for those students who have been working with us for the last few years. David will be demonstrating using the palette for direct painting, using the complementary and triad knowledge to make harmonious color decisions. Students will then work from a photo reference of their own or choose one from our library of landscape photo references.
