About This Class

It’s imperative that an artist sees what it is they’re creating. This may sound odd but it’s not uncommon for artists to be completely blind to their work. The reason this happens is because they’re only focused on one element of the work that they don’t see the whole.

Who is this for?
The lessons shared in this course are suited for all levels. It's also perfect for any medium from oils to digital painting.

Module One: Simplifying Elements And Principles Of Design
This section covers all you need to know about the basics of design elements and principles. And you will learn how they translate to making quality art. It's important to establish a foundation before moving into more advanced ideas. If you lack these with design techniques in your work then it's pointless to even pick up a paintbrush.

Here are a few images from this section.

Module Two: In-Depth Look Into Practical Design Theory
Here you will learn how to incorporate pattern, equality, designing within the frame and a whole lot more. The lessons in this section will dramatically improve your artwork in ways you never knew existed. There's also several complete demonstrations that illustrate how certain elements were used in a painting. So, you will see these methods in action as a painting is completed from design to finish.
