This class will work from photos to create a finished painting in 6 weeks. We will start drawing onto canvas with pencil using patience and accuracy. During the drawing portion we will use common techniques such as measuring, squinting, plum-lines, and more. Once a solid foundation has been built we will begin to apply oil paint in a time efficient manner. While painting we will go over proper paint application, time management, edges, and many other procedures to create a great piece of art.
