Art workshop: 10 Strategies for Simplifying Cityscapes with Terry Miura
Franciscan Life Process Center, Lowell campus
Wednesday-Friday, October 10-12
If you’ve ever tried to paint cityscapes, you know it is extremely challenging. Drawing cars and buildings are difficult enough –after all, unlike trees and boulders, they are not so forgiving– but to recreate an environment that encompass many of these unforgiving objects, light, atmosphere, mood, unity, and harmony is an extremely complex task, to put it mildly. So how does one do it? In this three-day workshop, Terry Miura will show you how to break down the complexities of painting the cityscape into ten smaller, manageable concepts, and will offer ways to simplify each. By investigating, understanding and gaining command of each of these concepts, and employing some or all of them in executing a painting, we can approach a complex cityscape painting with confidence and control. The knowledge will not only allow you to tackle difficult city scenes without being overwhelmed, but it will serve you well in painting any subject matter, whether you’re painting figures, still lifes, or landscapes!
