Photo to Painting

with Dan Graziano


The workshop will discuss techniques to quickly transfer the important elements of a reference photo to the canvas, as well as creating an artistic painting rather than simply rendering a photograph. Beginning with a discussion on the “basics” of oil painting (from materials to paint handling), the workshop will also address the fundamentals of color, value, edges, and perspective. Learn how to use a reference photo and create a loose, expressive and “painterly” painting!

Instruction will include a short painting demo by Dan, with an explanation of his process along the way. Participants will then work from their own photo references incorporating the techniques discussed, with plenty of one-on-one individual instruction throughout the day.

Students supply their own art supplies and equipment - a suggested supply list will be provided upon registration.
