About This Class

In this class you will learn the five stages of a painting. This will help you simplify your creative process and eliminate many mistakes such as bad compositions, adding details too soon, and much more. Building momentum in the studio is all about having a workflow which eliminates painting in circles.

The five steps is one of the methods I use & teach often since it's easy to understand and apply. Plus, it gets results! Students that apply this method have success right away and better understand how to achieve successful artworks.

Here is the final painting from the demonstrations:
