About This Class

Are you tired of a tight painting style? Are you looking for a more impressionist style of painting? One with the following characteristics:

  1. Thick juicy paint,
  2. Light filled paintings;
  3. Strong, large brushwork;
  4. Lively and impressionist feel

If so then this is the class to start.

We will begin with the critical basics like brushwork, paint application, paint mixing, color and shapes.

Once you are confident with these essentials we can move onto specific subjects and put this knowledge into action.

As always I believe in learning by doing. So there will be a fun assignment at the end to help you make a great start. After all painting is about taking action.

IMPORTANT: Please complete my other class How to Add Power to Your Painting. This class has essential methods and concepts that you will have to know before getting into this Loose Painting class.
