Composition Workshop! Saturday July 10

The skills of drawing and color are critically important and yet they don't find their full expression until they're teamed with a strong composition. If you're going to make a great picture you have to have a great composition.
That will be our topic of study for this years composition workshop on Saturday, July 10, 12-8pm. So whether you're a landscape painter, figurative or entertainment artist, if you're in the LA area I'd love to see you there.

  • Slideshow presentation and lecture, 12-3pm: 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. Studies of Composition in history and the modern day
  • Painting demonstration, 3:30-5
  • Compositional exercises, 6-7pm
  • Student painting time with instructor feedback, 7-8pm

I second Daniel Ljunggren's comment about hoping to see your lectures on-line some day soon. Every time there is another announcement a little of me dies inside, knowing we can't get to LA for it.
