Drawn to Painting

with Rob Zeller
Drawn to Painting
Join artist Rob Zeller for a dynamic, comprehensive introduction to creating a drawing based on a cast, then use your drawing skills as a springboard to create a painting.
Discover the rich world of value and composition as you learn to add dimension, light and form to a drawing that you'll go on to transpose into an oil painting. Simple drawing exercises will train your eye to break large objects into basic geometric shapes. Then venture into an exploration of the classical concepts of beauty and form. Teacher and artist Rob Zeller walks you through the process of drawing from a cast before teaching you how to carry the same ideas over to a beautifully defined oil painting.
