"Paint-over" technique.

In this class I will show you how to achieve a visually stunning paint-over technique that will have people believing you are a master of paint and brushes. This technique is amazingly easy and you just may kick yourself for not having used it more often.

The subject matter of your piece can be your favourite musician, artist or animal.

We will touch on a few colour theory concepts, then dive in the deep end to create a piece that is an expression of your art-journaling journey.
