Workshop: Perspective and Depth in Painting

July 12th - 1:00 to 3:30

Renaissance Gallery

Any drawing or painting is a two dimensional representation of a three dimensional scene, whether it be a portrait, landscape or still life. The subject may stretch across a table, a room, the yard or to the horizon, but is reproduced on the single plane of paper or canvas. Adding depth to the reproduction increases the representation of reality. The work becomes more alive, more lifelike and gives more sense of being there.

Workshop will focus on the use of Linear Perspective in the creating art or illustrations of three dimensional subjects in a two dimensional drawing or painting – how to draw things so that appear to be solid objects and not flat objects and how to relate them to each other.

The workshop will cover:

·         Principles of Linear Perspective – horizon lines and vanishing points. One, two and three point perspective. Indoors and Outdoors.

·         Application to common shapes often found in drawings and paintings.

·         Advanced uses – measuring in perspective

·         Other depth enhancement techniques – Aerial perspective, value, layering and others.

We will have examples and exercises to recognize the requirements of perspective and show how to apply it.

Materials will be provided. Cost: $25 space is limited to pre-registration is recommended.

Workshop will be taught by local artist, Ron Haeberle.

Ron is an award winning fine artist known for his exquisite and detailed renderings of down town Huntington. Ron Haeberle began painting as a retirement pastime in 2003, studying watercolor at the Huntington Museum of Art in Huntington West Virginia. His work includes landscapes, seascapes, portraits and architectural studies. The landscapes are largely drawn from the natural beauty of his native West Virginia farms, forests and streams, and from the coastal low country area of South Carolina, a favorite family vacation spot.

He is a juried member of the Tri-State Arts Association in Huntington WV, The Renaissance Gallery Huntington WV, and the Fine Art Gallery – Tamarack in Beckley, WV. He has participated in a number of art exhibitions and shows including the bi-annual TSSA juried exhibition at the Huntington Museum of Art and the juried “Best of West Virginia” exhibit at Tamarack.
