This 3.5 hour-long Live Zoom class includes instruction, demonstration, and question + answer time. It will help you interpret photographs and help you to see what is needed to turn a photo into a painting. Looking at light and composition to develop into something amazing rather than ordinary.

Positive, clean pastel work, with minimalistic mark making. You learn about Mark making and how important this is. Developing a style, how to avoid flat surfaces.
