About This Class

In this class I will share my approach to developing cityscape & townscape subjects. To do this I will start at the very beginning which is using charcoal & graphite to connect to the features and details that interest me the most. I then take it to the next level by exploring color with acrylic paint. Lastly, I create a finished painting based on my previous graphite & acrylic sketching.

Who Is This Class For?

Anyone that wants to understand and develop an approach to painting that is more about the process and not the end result. Often artists simply want a finished masterpiece yet they invest zero time in the art of developing their sensitivity to the subjects & medium.
