rock pile - ideas for painting composition 

I have been taking the Tucson Art Academy Online Course Concept to Canvas by Gabor Svagrik and have high praise for the course instruction and its format. This is a five week landscape painting course with a new lecture, demo and assignment each week. During this time, the student can revisit each lecture and demo as often as he wishes. The use of video and PhotoShop for critiques, enable the student to both hear and see what could make each work stronger.

I have traveled for workshops in the past and most likely will again, but for now, this method wins hands down. It is so nice to be able to have such high quality instruction in your own home and studio. Simply put — it is fantastic! Click here for a short video about the course. More posts to follow soon.
