HOW YOU SEE IT
and
IT’S NOT THE DETAILS
Presented by
David Lawton
How do you determine what photos will make a good painting? David will point out ideas on what to consider about photos before using them as reference for a painting. Or, explain why they may be better left as a photo. Also, how combining more than one image can make an even better painting.
Finally, David will show that it is not the detail that makes the painting. It is the combination of an underlying abstract structure that makes observers take notice from a distance. And that the so-called "detail" keeps viewers engaged once they are closer.
