In this intensive two day workshop Sally will show you how to set up your canvas and how to not only transform your photo into a painting, but how to set up a composition with your own perspective, helping you to understand where the light is coming from and how to depict the illusive dance of shadow and light accurately so as to capture what is perceived and what is revealed unique to each person's perception.

Sally is one of our very own talented self taught Laggan landscape village artists. Sally captures in a realist style the beautiful atmospheric play of light on the land and the vastness and changing moods of the Australian countryside. She uses acrylics expertly and has been commissioned to paint works for private collectors and the Australian Defence Force. Her landscapes are held in private and public collections both in Australia and overseas
Sally is interested in teaching beginner students to use a photo reference to experience the art of going from photo to painting. She is a master of not trying to reproduce the medium of photography but rather to use it as a starting point to express each artist's own vision of the world.
