Lecture no. 7 from the course: The Complete Painter: Lessons from the Masters
Taught by Professor David Brody | 20 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses
As you study line, texture, contour, space, and proportion, you’ll learn how painters can start with a flat shape and create a three-dimensional solid. By examining Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks and other paintings, you’ll learn how artists build upon simple geometric figures to create highly organized groupings of interlocking shapes.
