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. the workshop is designed to help you get the best out of Canson Touch paper and use underpainting techniques to create more light and texture.
