Course description:

Learn techniques to create a clean, expressive, confident painting and reduce the amount of ‘mucking about’.  Through a series of demos followed by exercises, Lalita will guide participants through 40-stroke studies that will inform participants on how to mix colour, leave marks alone, and create effective edges. Photos and subject matter will be provided. Appropriate for all oil or acrylic mediums, and will be geared toward those with some painting experience.

Supply list and photo references to be supplied closer to the workshop date and to registered participants.
