One-Day Oil Painting Workshop with Dan Graziano

October 14, 9-4pm

Painting From Photo Reference

At River Tree Arts: 35 Western Ave, Kennebunk, ME

The workshop will discuss techniques to quickly transfer the important elements of a reference photo to the canvas, as well as creating an artistic painting rather than simply rendering a photograph. Beginning with a discussion on the “basics” of oil painting (from materials to paint handling), the workshop will also address the fundamentals of color, value, edges and perspective. Learn how to use a reference photo and create a loose, expressive and “painterly” painting!

Instruction will include a short painting demo by Dan, with explanation of his process along the way. Participants will then work from their own photo references incorporating the techniques discussed, with plenty of one-on-one individual instruction throughout the day. Participants must provide their own materials.

Workshop fee is $95.00 ($85.00 for River Tree Arts members).

Dan Graziano is an award-winning, nationally exhibited artist whose paintings capture the hidden beauty found in the unexpected places and fleeting moments of everyday life. Incorporating dramatic light, shadow, color and perspective, his urban compositions feature the visual diversity of time-worn buildings and multiple layers of decay, renewal and adaptation which proudly display the effects of time as well as the qualities of strength and authenticity.
