I am so excited, as we are getting closer to the launch date I wanted to let you know that I keep coming up with ideas and have been adding more information and new assignments, I think you are going to really love this course.
Once the course starts and you are logged (if you like) you can download the video lessons to your computer or device so you can paint anywhere at anytime.
The 4-week time span is meant to keep you inspired and on track, but you can also go at your own pace and have lifetime access to the content. During the course I am available to all students for comments and depending on my schedule I will be checking in to the Disqus page often for painting reviews. For more information visit the Enroll in course link.
Interaction is optional and not required
Ask questions, upload paintings for review & more
Reference photos & line drawings available

When it comes to backgrounds, do you paint the background first, or leave it for last, keep it the white of the paper or add lots detail and color.
