EMPHASIS
Make your art the center of attention! 

Emphasis is what we call the focal point, the dominant element – where you want the viewer to stop and stay in your painting. It can be achieved in many ways and a painting can have one or multiple elements of emphasis. 

Contrast, Positioning, Convergence and The Unusual: Within those 4 categories you will also learn value, colors, hue, saturation, pattern& texture, size & proportion, centring, isolation, leading elements and the unexpected. 

You will learn: 

  • 4 Categories of Emphasis
  • All ways to achieve those 4 types of emphasis
  • Create mini sketches 

Put into practice the theory you learned using mini studies and successfully translate your ideas onto canvas!

MOVEMENT
Take Your Work From Static to Captivating

Are potential buyers taking one glance but then moving onto the next piece? Creating movement in your pieces through abstraction, brushstrokes, and color placement allows you to control your viewers experience. You have a story to tell and there are tried and true practices you can use today to keep your viewer engaged. In three lessons, you will walk through twelve techniques that will finally add that life and excitement to your work! 

You will learn: 

  • The difference between sketching to paint and sketching to draw
  • Basic sketching foundations to develop muscle memory
  • How to see in shape and break down a reference image 

Learn how to captivate your viewers eye. Keep their attention on your work so that they will not be able to walk away.
