Part 1: Preparation and composition

We will learn how to prepare a canvas, make washes, and build the composition by covering basic notions such as triangularity and gold section.

Part 2: Structure

We will then move on to painting with the application of paint, texture and colour in different stages. We will experience letting loose and unleashing our creativity.
