Paint Sketching


Improve brush handling, color mixing, and simplifying a complex topic into its most important elements through painting sketches. Free yourself from the stresses of always working on a finished painting! Allow yourself to learn quickly by embracing learning as the ultimate goal. We will be executing two painting sketches per class, focusing on specific techniques and elements. Some painting experience recommended. Open to oil, acrylic, and watercolor, with an emphasis on oil.
