Course Number: 32
Level: Advanced

Join Richard Sturdevant newly crowned 4-Time PPA IPC Double Diamond Loan winner for a trip into the artistic soul.

Creating an exceptional fine art composite consists of many things, but the two that separate good from great are conception and finish. Conception and the ability to dream up a visual idea or to tell visual story that is original and unique to your vision is priceless.

Equally important is the ability to bring it all together is such away that it is beautiful and meaningful to the viewer. The finish of the art should keep the viewer engaged in the content and not the technique. Everything in between this journey is trained execution.

In this program I will share like never before on this process, known for my style, concepts and the way I finish up an image. I will share how to create concepts that reflect who you are and how to execute them and most of all finish them in such a beautiful way. I’m good at what I do and you will leave this workshop better for it.

– Conception
– Resource gathering
– Light creation and lighting to fit the scene
– Using the right angle of view
– Extraction
– Composition
– Color theory and Harmony
– Illustration techniques that can be used on any image
– Plug-in techniques
