About This Class

In this class I will teach you & demonstrate how to create two cow paintings on one sheet of paper using a reject. Now you can choose any subject you wish but for this demo I will use my favorite go-to subject which happens to be cows.

This is a great technique that will teach and inspire you to use rejects to create expressive paintings along with a fun way to make the process more interesting. Another benefit of this technique is it will help your vision and ability to create art in unique ways. This is because each reject is totally different from the next one. So, you will need to adjust to each one which is where you will learn and develop your skills to manifest a subject through the chaos.

I suggest you keep it simple with the composition. A cow, soda can, wine bottle, etc. work well since it's a simplified subject. As you gain experience you will become more comfortable and that's when you can start to try more elaborate compositions/subjects.
