Artists come to join me and gain confidence in being taught the proper structure of technique and application of the materials. Through this hands–on course, students will learn diverse painting styles, as well as various master’s techniques. We will cover concepts such as: working lean to fat, impasto, and Alla Prima, under painting designed specifically for each image.
