About This Class

7b6cd8f9

In this class you will be creating an interesting, vibrant painted and textural 'ground' - the surface that our image will sit on. Then using a white Posca pen ( or white gouache ) we will be blocking out fruit 'shapes' and then adding small college details that will really enhance the look of your piece. The results will be super!

Further on we will explore a floral theme using posca and gel pens, where we will be mindful of the negative space between flowers to create a balanced composition. 

This class will be a fun exercise and would be suitable for all. Be open to explore this theme further perhaps with examples beyond what I have thought of ! I can't wait to see what you create.
