Eyes Have It

$ 170  


This whimsical painting starts with a very colorful under painting. Subsequent layers adds color and texture. Shapes are then carved out using gesso. Further embellishment is added with paint, pen and watercolor crayons. The step by step instruction enables beginner and experienced painters to complete a successful painting. Your creativity will guarantee an original piece of art! You will be provided with line drawings for the giraffe and cats to use or design your own. I anticipate that paintings will be 90% completed in class.
