Tweaking Your Photos For Better Paintings With Nancy Lane

Tweaking Your Photos For Better Paintings With Nancy Lane

Nancy Lane

We’ve all taken a photo to paint from later. But the photo didn’t quite capture what we saw or felt. We paint it anyway and are disappointed with our result– which might have been improved if we had adjusted the photo first. In this workshop, you’ll need your smart phone, tablet or laptop with photo library to access your photos. You’ll learn how to adjust them to create better painting references that simulate how the human eye sees. We’ll practice adjusting cropping, horizon lines, highlights and shadows, and simplifying shapes. Your photos are a starting point, not the final version of what your painting should look like. We’ll do small sketches of our future painting that incorporate additional revisions to create useful guides for your future painting and how to transfer your sketch to your paper or canvas.
