Join Sara Beth Fair’s workshop to capture your impression of cityscapes in oil. One of the most beloved genres of painting is the everyday street scene, which has inspired the interest of so many of the impressionist and modern painters. To tell a story in paint of a place that is familiar, beloved, exciting . . . is truly a thrill. Open to all levels of artist who want to master the fundamentals of painting. Instructional work is designed for each experience level. Demos, a slide presentation, and critiques included.
When painting a cityscape, an artist does not need to know anything different than the basic fundamentals of painting – composition, line, value, color . . . however, the amount of information and the architectural information in a cityscape can often be a bit overwhelming. In this class, we will review the fundamentals of painting and emphasize making these your own. We will also focus on how to simplify drawing complicated street scenes and to know what to leave in and more importantly what to leave out.The workshop will focus on understanding and simplifying drawing; composition; laying down a foundation quickly and confidently; identifying focal points and developing them; seeing values and colors; and developing your individual style.
