Video Download: Beyond Realism with Brian Ryder, Part 2

Format: Download

There are so many ways to get inspiration for abstract paintings--from emotions, feelings, recollections, people or places you've seen. In this video you will start with pen-and-wash and then oil sketches to investigate shapes and possibilities, to capture whatever it is that attracts you to your subject. These initial sketches help reinforce your ideas about the abstract composition. Then move onto a larger canvas to complete a finished abstract painting step by step, using acrylics and some oil pastel with focus on texture, color, shape and composition for a dramatic final piece.

A very good lesson for those wanting to begin to explore abstract painting Review by Tim
Rating

Brian Ryder takes the viewer from a coastal scene using different media to move towards increasing abstraction. He does this clearly and in detail. I found this dvd proved helpful with suggestions for how to move from landscape realism to a more abstracted painting approach, which I have found to be deceptively simple. The dvd ends with a gallery of Ryder's paintings which he speaks about, and this section reinforces what is possible in taking a real scene and turning it into an abstract work or at least a work which is heavily abstracted.
