This self-pacing course is for those who’ve already purchased the four lessons in Creating Distance, Series Thirty-nine. If you have purchased some of the lessons, but not Lesson One, please add Lesson One to your cart.
You will receive an email with a link to the course syllabus. While doing the lessons, you will receive email feedback for each lesson along with two live online coaching sessions with Dianne.
The entire course is based on the concept that as images move into a distance their characteristics gradually change. We will see value contrasts decreasing from strong to close, hues might gently merge from one to another, intensities often become more neutral, textures can progressively disappear, and sizes will steadily become smaller. We can create distance in our paintings by creating these changes in our images. The four lessons in this mini-course give guidance in that direction.
Here’s how it works:
1. Begin with the Lesson 1, Gradating with Color. Watch the lesson, then do the Prompt that Dianne assigns at the end. If you have any questions, email Dianne by going to the Contact page on the website.
2. Once you complete the exercise in the Prompt, take a photo of your study and send it to Dianne, then schedule a live coaching session with her by going to a link she will provide and choosing a time frame that works for you.
3. Your coaching session with Dianne will determine your next step, whether it would be better to re-visit the principles in Lesson 1 or to continue with Lesson 2.
4. This will get you started. Dianne will guide you as needed with the next three lessons. Your second coaching session will be determined by when you want to schedule it.
