This foundational digital painting course focuses on the observation, understanding and design of lighting and color to create immersive landscapes. Students will learn how to see and understand how color and lighting works through the study of nature around us. Through the studies, students will compose, experiment and push their colors based on these foundational skills learned from this class to create paintings that are rich in narrative mood yet grounded in reality.
