About This Class

Learn an efficient method for creating successful paintings by using composition sketches. In this short and easy to understand class I will cover two methods which include line & tonal drawings. To do this I will use charcoal & copic markers along with a seascape photo for inspiration.

This class will inspire you to take the time to dissect your images so that you build more confident paintings.

Great tutorial. Found it encouraged me to take a more thoughtful but looser approach to painting.
Great class. Love the loose sketching, and seeing his process. Thanks for the class!
