Interpreting Photography into Painting Webinar - March 10


I am giving a webinar as a part of the the Winter Digital Art Summit. The summit is running now through March 11. Fifteen artists will be giving webinars covering a wide range of topics.

My session is described below:

Visual Vocabularies: Interpreting Photography into Painting

I like to think of various art forms as each having a unique visual vocabulary. Painting, for example, has a unique visual vocabulary: brush strokes, canvas weave, and oil paint’s color range are attributes unique to a painting. Likewise, photographs have a unique vocabulary. Key elements of the photograph include sharp focus, depth-of-field, and high detail.

The appearance of software such as Painter and Photoshop —coupled with the phenomenal growth of digital photography— offers photographers and artists even more expressive choices with regard to the photograph. A current trend is the interpretation of a photographic source into a traditional painted appearance. This session describes the implementation of visual vocabularies to expressively interpret your photographs into successful paintings.

I'll be giving a live demonstration of my techniques during this approximately 2-hour session.

All of webinars are being recorded, so you can either attend the session or download the video at a later time. Each webinar is $47; there are also multiple-webinar package deals available on the Digital Art Summit web site.

The sign-up page for my webinar is here.

I hope to see you there!
