About This Class

64a6a50d

Welcome!  Illustration in itself is so much fun.  What happens, though, when you add the element of embellishment?  In other words, small designs made to enhance the illustration.  When executed well, embellishment can take your illustration to the next level.  

This class is a challenge in adding embellishment to your work.  I'll show you some inspiration for adding several types of accents to different styles of art.  Then I'll show you some of my projects and how I chose how to enhance them with special marks, design, and paint strokes.  If you want to try something new, hone your existing skills I look forward to seeing you in the class! 

Happy Embellishing!!!
