This online course is ideal for those who want to record their visual impressions, thoughts and observations as they live their unique lives. This is a visual, and or written record in order to improve observational abilities, painting techniques, skill sets, and understanding of different mediums. Over months and years, a journal becomes a reflection and a memory of the artists improvements and failures and a way of building your own art practice and approach to creating art. Sometimes a remarkable image will surface, and there are lots of “aha” moments on the journey.
Andrew Judd is a professional illustrator and art director. An award winning graduate from the Ontario College of Art, he has exhibited in Vienna, Prague, London, Santa Fe, Montreal and Toronto. Andrew had a unique opportunity to learn the traditions of the Art Students League of New York while working for his first employer, William Biddle. Sharing this information with others in private, classroom, and workshop settings has been an important component of his own personal growth as an artist and teacher. Years of working in the business have taught him how critical the fundamentals of good drawing, value relationships and color are to the success of an image. Painting outdoors, in cafes, or working in the comfort of a studio, Andrew believes a simple, orderly, and knowledgeable working process contribute to the success of good art. Andrew’s illustrations are represented by Masterfile, and his original paintings and drawings are available through Westmount Gallery in Toronto. You can see his work at www.andrewjudd.com
