In this course, you will continue your exploration of complex textures, patterns, and details. We will study how shapes of dark and light inform texture, using dry-brushing techniques to achieve stunning realism. We will also explore depicting wet and translucent surfaces using both wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry techniques to capture challenging lighting effects.

Students will need to bring materials to this class. CLICK HERE for Materials List
