I will be teaching a 5 day painting workshop in Scottsdale. I taught a similar course last year and had a great response. The Scottsdale Artists' School is a great place to study, they staff makes it very easy on students.
This workshop will help students to simplify their compositions, learning to leave out the unimportant and strengthen composition. A common problem I hear about from students is that they take photos for reference as well as paint studies, but have a hard time turning them into finished paintings in the studio. This workshop will address this issue and we will learn to use the reference to help us in the studio.
Here is a course description from the Scottsdale Artists' School website:
