“I’ve always loved the details of design.” - Stephanie Hartshorn
Capturing the vibrant energy of a cityscape or the quiet of a pastoral farm scene requires believable, relatable perspective. However, architecture in paintings can often feel rigid, sterile and lifeless. So how do you translate this complex and bulky information into a beautiful painting? Though there are many perspective techniques, their overall aim is to simply mimic the way we naturally see. Stephanie will walk you through a number of quick “mental muscle building” exercises on the first day, geared to strengthen drawing accuracy. The remainder of the workshop will focus on integrating structure into your painting through design intention, composition, and expressive brushwork. Working from photo reference or plein air study, you will paint with individualized instruction and feedback. This class is for beginners to intermediate.
