Through a series of small paintings, both “into-the-light” and “down-the-light,” students will focus on creating large, interesting shapes; exciting darks; various kinds of edges; and well-designed focal areas in which color plays a major role. Roger will provide photos of street scenes for his students to use, but also encourages them to bring their own. Prerequisites: Intermediate and advanced painters only. Space is limited.
