Painting From Photos in Watercolor

Instructor: Sue Martin

Tuesdays - November 7, 14, 21, and 28

1 pm to 3 pm

South Salt Lake Community Center Co-Op

Art Room - 2531 South 500 East

Beginning-to-intermediate watercolor artists who have taken an introductory watercolor class, such as Painting From Life in Watercolor, are invited to a series of four classes focused on painting from photo references. Participants will learn how to adapt the photo to create a pleasing composition, and how to adjust the colors and values to better represent the “live” subject. More advanced students who want to learn to paint more “loosely” will be guided to use the elements of design – value, color, line, shape, and texture/pattern – to abstract the subject to create their own unique interpretation.

Instructor Sue Martin places an emphasis on playfulness, encouragement, and individual mentoring in a relaxed atmosphere.

A suggested materials list will be provided. Participants may also sign up to borrow materials during class.
