6 Key Principles to Instantly Improve Your Paintings
This workshop is for you if you want to:

  • Develop your creativity by crafting your own scenes

  • Learn how to convey a unique atmosphere in your paintings

  • Add more depth and emotion to your work

  • Discover the secrets used by an artist to make her paintings captivating and engaging

  • Move from simple copying to creating your own original artworks
6 Key Principles:
These six fundamental principles will help you transition from merely copying a photograph or object to making something more creative, filled with your own ideas and expression. Creating your own paintings is a significant step.

It’s a step that many find challenging because, while people want to create their own artworks, it’s much easier to copy objects. So, how do you move from copying to crafting original paintings without sacrificing quality?

Art is not just about technique. It’s primarily about the person painting — their ideas, desires, and level of skill. It’s about how creative the person is and how well they can transform their ideas into something tangible: their choice of colors, composition decisions, and the types of artworks they want to create.

Want to learn how to achieve the best results here? Join the workshop, and Janine will share with you her many tips!
