About This Class

In this class you will learn how important 'know your subjects' is and how it will help you develop style & technique. Creating awesome art is all about how you interpret your subjects and most importantly your ability to use a variety of tools to express them.

However, many artists simply paint pictures only as they see them - which is rather boring & lacks personality. That's why I created this class so that you can easily see how 'connecting to your subjects' will transform your stale art into much more meaningful paintings.

A Closer Look

In Part One I will use charcoal & acrylics to cover the basic idea behind 'connecting to your subjects'. By minimizing the mediums you can better focus on the core lesson(s). In Part 2 I will get into painting with Mixed Media to unlock a whole new level of 'connecting'.

Who Is This For?

Anyone that wants to break out of painting predictable, boring artwork & add personality & style to their art. It's suited for any level artist and you can certainly use any medium you prefer.

Excellent presentation of creating art in the flow, letting go and feeling the art. NOT a straight line in sight, nor neat colouring, but a great guide on picking elements and changing then to suit you and your mood. Finally the insight I need to appreciate art on a whole new level. Thank you Robert. Your art is amazing.
