How It Works: Robert will create a series of four paintings all inspired from photos. Each painting is broken down from the very beginning. The steps will include understanding what's included in the original photo; then Robert will extract the elements that are interesting; the scene is re-worked into a new design based on his thoughts and vision. Then a finished painting is completed so you see the idea(s) come to fruition.
Assignment One: An assignment that includes seven photo references. You will take each image and use some of the ideas Robert shared in section one to make edits that appeal to you.
Assignment Two: Robert completes the same assignment using the exact same images as you. This will give you something to compare your work to so that you aren't left with questions. There are no right or wrongs but it's useful to see how he approaches each image.
Your Turn: Create a final painting based on your favorite design. Robert will paint his favorite and toss in a bonus video of another :)
When you are finished you will have some fresh ideas and techniques for working from photos.
