How To Paint Detailed Fruit Tart

How To Paint Detailed Fruit Tart - student project

The class is now published! :D

I will go over the painting method for each fruit one by one including how to achieve the wanted texture in individual fruits. This Class will be divided into smaller lessons so it's easier for student's to digest information, and take a break in between lessons whenever they wish to without disturbing the painting.
