This 3 day course will cover important design considerations and introduce clear thought processes to launch from when working from photo reference. You will explore key concepts for seeing the potential in your photos, so that you can build on them to create strong, compelling paintings. There will be several exercises designed to break you out of the “copy the photo" idea, providing you with several new approaches for your toolkit. In addition you will achieve greater clarity on what photos have potential and which are better left unpainted – and why. This workshop is applicable to all mediums. In addition to 25 years working as a professional artist, Liz is also a Certified Life Coach. She brings her training in this area to uncovering each individual student’s creative challenges, helping them get clear on what their unique obstacles and strengths are, and giving them tools to move forward powerfully in their artistic journey.
Liz Wiltzen has been painting professionally for over 25 years, and teaching extensively for
the last 5. Throughout her career, she has found that what invigorates, captivates and
entertains her is challenge, and she recognizes that in order to meet new challenges with
confidence, a strong grounding in fundamentals is essential. This has led her to dedicate a
large part of her painting focus toward honing key foundational skills. She believes painting
should be both disciplined and playful, and that joy in the process should be a high priority.
Through study with accomplished artists as well as a personal commitment to continually
growing as a painter, Liz has discovered an approach to painting that is both skillful and
liberating. She is passionate about helping other artists do the same, and this has inspired
her to develop a method of teaching that is accessible and hugely transformative for her
students, no matter what their current level of ability. www.elizabethwiltzen.com
