Mark Daniel Nelson - Image to Abstract
This workshop is specially designed for the realist painter interested in adding elements of abstraction to his or her work, while remaining firmly rooted in traditional representational techniques. A series of progressive exercises will guide the student through a process of eliminating unnecessary visual information to arrive at a clear and simplified final image. Through a combination of slideshows, discussions, assignments and critiques, this workshop will expose students to new artistic possibilities for self-expression. Students should bring their own reference photos and also plan to take photos while in class. Prints may be used and/or laptop/iPad (especially if it has photo-editing software). There will be at least one session painting from a still life set-up.
