PAINTING THE LIGHT

Small group | All levels | Virtual space is limited

Artists exploit the knowledge of light distribution on the objects to create paintings. Those paintings’ look is something people are very attracted to.

  • You will learn during this workshop the process of painting using the knowledge of light.
  • Receive Vlad’s feedback Live on Zoom
  • Ask questions any time during the workshop
  • Replay the workshop for 2 days

It is quite used topic recently but most of the time this subject understood incorrectly. If I paint the things around me, of course I paint the light, right? Nope. The professional artist knows it , the good one, the bad one continues painting illustrations. That is why when you see the work, unconsciously you know, it’s real, it’s a pro work.

I will tell you, but most important show you and even more important explain you what does that mean to paint the light even using the photograph.

There will be a tiny lecture up front, then together we’ll do a small exercise from a photo. And finally we will paint the streetscape.

All of this will be LIVE and you will have the opportunity to ask questions, show me your results and communicate with me using your microphone and camera. Most important, you will receive a “roadmap” for your future development.

We sort of know that Vlad is not going to be with you all the time in your studio and looking above your shoulder, right? 😉

Fee: $75 – reserve your spot today by clicking HERE.

The workshop will concentrate on idea of reinterpreting the scenery into loose impressionist perception style. Composition, hierarchy of elements in it, painting techniques approaches to highlight only important elements will be the subject of the lecture beforehand.

Small group of students will give Vlad the opportunity to look at each student work in progress and comment on it along the way.
