Week 5 LOCATION CHANGE

Friday's class will meet in the LAB.   If you would like to paint outside, you may paint on campus in the Pavilion area.  Please bring your architectural photos.  You may begin painting those in the lab.or continue on your landscape paintings.  Since it's expected to be in the high 90's, I've decided to move the location to the lab, or if you like, you may still paint outside.

Week 4

Hi Everyone;  this week we will meet in the LAB.  Please bring your 2 original paintings to class for scanning, as well as your 2 original master copies.

Also, remember to bring your PHOTO reference!  You will be finishing your paintings in Photoshop and will be working from your reference.

If you haven't taken photographs for the architectural assignment, please do so within the next week or so.
These architectural photos should have interesting lighting.  The best time to take these photos is late afternoon; usually 5 - 7 PM.  Try to find interesting buildings or houses, or any architectural element that you find has character.  Take at least 8 - 10 photos of different structures that we can pick from.

See you in the lab, no later than 9:30 am,

Mike
