Lots of fun. I really enjoyed this class from Elena.
My favorite lesson was about the ice cream cone. So many techniques rolled into one lesson. Using the tissue to remove colour to create the waffle texture is something I would not of thought of, then building up the shadows and highlights added to the realism of the cone. While some of the sketching was a little overexposed, overall the class gets a well deserved thumbs up from me.
