An exercise in building layers of color.
This whimsical painting starts with a very colorful underpainting. Subsequent layers add colors and texture. The step by step instruction enables beginner and experienced painters to complete a successful painting. Your creativity will guarantee an original piece of art! I anticipate that paintings will be 90% completed in class.
