Painting from a Photo Reference – Dan Graziano

October 27, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Dan Graziano is an award-winning, nationally exhibited artist whose paintings capture the hidden beauty found in the unexpected places and fleeting moments of everyday life. His work has been featured in numerous publications and is in the collections of private and corporate collectors throughout the world.

This workshop will discuss techniques to quickly transfer the important elements of a reference photo to the canvas, as well as creating an artistic painting rather than simply rendering a photograph. Beginning with a discussion on the “basics” of oil painting (from materials to paint handling), the workshop will also address the fundamentals of color, value, edges, and perspective. Learn how to use a reference photo and create a loose, expressive and “painterly” painting!

Instruction will include a short painting demo by Dan, with an explanation of his process along the way. Participants will then work from their own photo references incorporating the techniques discussed, with plenty of one-on-one individual instruction throughout the day.

TCA Members receive a $50 discount on all classes.
