Hadas Tal: Urban Landscape Painting

Hadas Tal: Urban Landscape Painting


Learn in depth color theory, color temperature & value with direct demos & hands on discussion. Learn scale, composition, while interpreting & constructing an image from a photo reference of your choice that will result in an image that marries realism & abstraction. I will teach you to go beyond the photo reference.

I will go into detail with mark making, premixing your colors, shape, value, & scale & taking your work to the next level, allowing students to make solid development in their technique in a relatively short amount of time.
