The Architecture of Light – Venice, Italy: May 12 – 16, 2018 Fee: $895 USD
Venice, Italy – a painter’s dream
For centuries, artists have painted its iconic waterways, and gondolas, and sweeping views. Tom has always dreamed of bringing a small group of painters together to paint the more intimate, quieter side, and the smaller corners of this beautiful city.
In this exclusive 5-day workshop, a limited number of artists will join me to explore this amazing city through the lens of plein-air watercolor sketching. Primarily, we will focus on ‘ways of seeing’. From initial impression sketches, we will begin to discover how to identify the roots of our own unique inspiration.
The importance of site sketching, shape composition, value layering, and complementary color orchestration, are among the elements of successful image making that will be covered.
It truly is not what we see, but how we see that can make all the difference. And so if we broaden and deepen our vision, we can begin to look and to see in new ways, and with new eyes.
