For this session, our fist project we will explore the beauty of Paris in the spring. Umbrellas everywhere while the rain blurs the boulevards. We will use a combination of brushes and pallet knife to create this textured piece.
Our second project will be a starry night beach scene. Creating moon shadows and illuminated trees we will explore the use of light to create ambiance at night. A combination of soft bristle and stiff bristled brushes will give us this look.
