3 Day Workshop

Essential perspective for figurative and landscape artists is a remarkable new workshop that will teach you how to use perspective to increase 3D, depth and solidity in your art.  The workshop is filled with powerful insights offering some of the clearest and most accessible perspective instruction available.  It’s interactive and simple. Each day you’ll learn theory then apply it, building an understanding of what perspective is and how to use it is your art.

Richard Payne brings his knowledge and skills from architectural illustration to make this complicated area accessible to the artist.  Having taught master-classes at academies in Florence, New York and San Francisco he now shares his passion with the Victorian Artists Society artists.
