*NEW* Often a beautiful piece of art can emerge from just a small section of a larger photograph. This course aims to change the way you perceive the landscape; allows you to develop abstract yet meaningful works by focusing on individual sections of a larger image. Develop confidence in pattern, colour, composition and mood, creating work that still has relevance to its source.
