Perspective: One and Two-Point Used to Your Advantage

 5 weeks (2 hour class)

Randy reviews one point and two point perspective and how they can be used to enhance your work. If incorrect in your drawing, objects drawn in perspective can detract from the composition.  Emphasis will be to get the perspective right before you spend valuable painting time with detail and color.  A great drawing results in a great painting! Topics covered will include: One and Two Point Perspective, Perspective applied to Landscape Painting & Still Life, Quick Method for Laying out Ellipses in Perspective, Layout of Proportional Objects, Atmospheric Perspective, Planar Perspective.


One Day Workshop - Sketching & Painting  the Architecture of Manchester

 Learn how to simplify architectural elements and identify compositional problems when    drawing and painting architecture. Randy does a brief demo en plein air should weather  permit (from reference photos should it not) that is followed by students composing their own architectural scene. On location or using reference photos of their own or the instructors, the emphasis will be on value, color, stroke, perspective (aerial and technical) to simplify structural elements when depicting buildings in your work. Feel free to bring sketches or paintings that you may have questions with or would like to expand on.  Medium either oil or pastel.
