Casey Baugh’s Pre-Convention Workshop
Working from Live Models and Photography
Workshop Dates: Sat., Nov 9 12:00pm – 5:00 pm & Sun., Nov 10 9:00 am – 2:45 pm.
Sometimes an artist can’t afford a live model to do an entire painting session, sometimes you can hire them long enough to get some photos. And of course, sometimes you can’t hire one at all.
For some the use of photos is forbidden, but the spirit of painting from photos is to get a great painting that does not look like a photo and looks like a painting.
We all know the camera can lie, therefore we need to know how it lies, and what we can do to make paintings from photos come alive.
In this two day observation-only workshop you’ll watch Casey pose and photograph a model, and then do a full painting demonstration from the model. You’ll see two different model sessions and two different demonstrations so you can implement these styles in your own work.
No materials are needed for this workshop.
