Painting From Observation
Once your drawing skills are established, you can move on to painting with colour. We will learn about colour, values, and how these elements work together to make your paintings stronger through a series of exercises beginning with painting simple value sketches in colour and culminating in a still life painting.
About the Instructor Jodi Shuster
My love of painting and drawing spans four decades. This passion led to my first career as an animator with its emphasis on drawing, movement and gesture enriched by countless life drawing sessions. My yearning for colour motivated me to study painting at Concordia University. When I returned to animation it was as a background painter. I started my full-time painting career in 2004. I have had several solo shows and have been in juried shows in Toronto. I have had representation by galleries in Toronto and Montreal.
