The Art of Composition: the foundation of a painting With Tohby Riddle

Saturday 5 February 2022
10.30am-3.30pm

Composition is the foundation of a good painting. In fact, no amount of skilled painting can rescue a poor composition. Join Tohby Riddle as he takes you through the process of setting up a painting from a photo, through careful attention to subject matter and its composition – and its subsequent transcription to canvas or board.

The workshop includes; learning how to see and noticing your environment; achieving optimal composition through framing and cropping of photos; and transcribing the composition to your painting surface so that you are ready to paint. (please note – this workshop does not include finishing the painting – you will be doing that at home)

Ticket price includes a primed board. Participants will need to bring: Graphite pencils, eraser and a photo – printout preferred – of a scene to reproduce.

$130/$120 InSight Members.
