In this workshop, Yuki will walk you through how to create an atmosphere of a scene by establishing the sense of depth in the picture plane and also by breaking away from a rigid coloring-in painting style. You will start painting with confident brush strokes and expressive edge qualities. You will also learn how to simplify a complex subject by extracting the most important feature of the subject while leaving unnecessary details out. Establishing a strong tonal value pattern in your picture plane is also important. We will practice tonal value studies and monochromatic paintings and learn how to translate them into full-color paintings for maximum visual and emotional impacts.
Because of the small class size, you will receive plenty of individual help throughout the workshop. All levels are welcome.
