The LaGrange Art Museum is fortunate to have award winning artist Amanda Lovett teaching a workshop that will help artists learn to bring their paintings to life with light. Whether they paint from life in the field or from photos in the studio, capturing the light envelope can be one of the toughest tasks. This workshop will help artists learn how to block in light and understand what makes it believable. The key to any difficult subject is to break it down into its simplest form and learn to keep only the bare essentials necessary to imply an object rather than completely replicate it. Instruction will include how to develop the attendees’ ability to gauge proportions, measure angles, explore the effects of light and improve their understanding of perspective. Workshop attendees are welcome to bring their own reference or may select from the many Amanda will have on hand. The workshop will be taught in oils, but acrylic painters are also welcome. Minimum 10/ Maximum 12 students. To learn more about Amanda, visit AmandaLovett.com.
