Instructor: Randy Hayashi

You’ve take some great scenic photos, and now you wonder how to turn them into beautiful paintings. Let Randy Hayashi show you in this special weekend retreat!

Friday: Learn to choose and manipulate your photos, and to block in your painting.

Saturday-Sunday: Explore the importance of design and composition before painting, and how to simplify from your photo. Start with sketching and trying different value studies with pencil and paper.

Our focus throughout is on creating a compelling landscape painting. Let’s expand our understanding of acrylic painting and the expressive use of colour. Let’s share tips and techniques. Each day includes a short demo and several mini-lessons as well as individual instruction.
