St. Thomas Courtyard
St. Thomas, Virgin Islands
On a cruise to the Virgin Islands Roger spots a courtyard scene he wants to paint back in his studio. This extended session explores how to choose and simplify a complex photograph by eliminating unwanted obstacles exposing the artistic vision within. Only three colors plus white are used to create the painting simplifying the process even further. The use of one point perspective and shadow placement is discussed in depth in this 50 minute demonstration. Sarah takes you through lively downtown Charlotte Amalie filled with vacationers.
