We will explore gathering inspiration, using a reference image to sketch from, harmonious color combinations, adding accent colors to make your design pop and in the final stage adding fine details such as gold leaf.
This class is for all levels, but some basic knowledge of color blending will be helpful. If you haven’t painted before, that’s okay. This style is natural and intuitive, if you follow along with the class, I have broken it down into a step by step process for you.
You can follow me on Skillshare or Pinterest to see some of my favourite color palettes, and art inspiration. I’d love to connect and see your project results.
