painting light and shadows, hair and clothes, and all the techniques that make a good portrait great. Some experimental techniques will be explored, and demonstrations will be given as needed. The instructor will share many painting and composition methods, tricks and visual aids in order to to make a more enjoyable, relaxed and “fearless” learning experience.
