    In this workshop, you’ll learn the key concepts of painting interior scenes. Eli will demonstrate and explain her methods and work one-on-one with each student. The focus will be on: How light flows through a scene, illuminating forms and creating an evocative mood. Achieving accurate drawing and correct values; two of the most crucial aspects of representational painting. How to develop a well-balanced composition of light and shadow patterns  (chiaroscuro). How to quickly block in the motif or major elements of the scene. Balancing warm incandescent light with cool natural light.  And lastly how to achieve value contrast and add finishing touches to your painting.
