Painters having been using photo reference since the camera was first invented. But along the way artists began to see the photo as truth. Copying a poor photo will result in a poor painting. In this workshop Nancy teaches you how to take the best parts of a photo, or multiple photos, to create a painting that is uniquely your own. Without the expense or experience needed to work with computer programs such as Photoshop, you’ll learn how to use digital photos as another tool in your artist’s toolbox. You will need a simple photo editing program that comes with your computer or a smartphone.

Nancy Tankersley began her career as a portraitist but entered the gallery scene with figurative paintings of people at work and at leisure. Currently as she searches for the unpredictable, Tankersley moves between landscape, figures and still life. Incorporating non-traditional tools , supports and technologies for her paintings she remains faithful to her impressionistic style.

Active in the current plein air movement, and a founder of Plein Air Easton, she travels worldwide participating in competitions, judging and teaching. Most recently, she was the Featured Artist at the 49th Annual Waterfowl Exhibit and Festival in Easton, Maryland where she featured paintings of watermen at work. In 2016 and 2017 she was invited to exhibit at the prestigious Masters Exhibition at the Salmagundi Club in NYC. Recent awards include Award for Excellence at the American Impressionist Society Annual Exhibit in 2018, Best of Show at the Lighthouse Plein Air Festival 2017 and the Dickinson Award for Best Painting by a Signature Member of the American Impressionist Society 2016 Annual Juried Exhibit. www.nancytankersley.com
