In this course we will be working from found imagery to create original oil paintings. Many artists use photography as their primary source, and in these classes we will consider how they have approached this and how we can mine the vast archive of C20th imagery in photography and film to inspire our own work.
We’ll approach color and composition in our own work by learning from the masterworks of other artists, both contemporary and historical. There will be time in each session devoted to learning from other painters who use photography and film, and we will consider both the choosing of powerful imagery and the interpretation of it using colour, composition and brushwork.
What this course will cover:
Students will be given lively exercises to follow, homework to complete and will be given feedback each week. Amy will demonstrate her approach to choosing imagery, using drawing and digital methods to compose, and starting a painting.
You’ll leave the workshop with a new confidence about making original choices and new ideas to use found imagery in your own painting.
UK-based painter Amy Dury works with oils to create evocative and nostalgic works of art. Combining elements of realism with occasional abstract and gestural brushwork, Amy’s figurative paintings have a distinct atmosphere to them. Each of Amy’s works have their own colour scheme, sometimes sticking to a palette of sombre blues, and at other times consisting of rich reds and earthy browns.
This class is full. Please sign up for the Wait List to be notified if a spot opens up or if Amy adds another section of this class.
