Use your own reference material or the instructor's photos for landscape, seascape, floral or portraits. Instructor is knowledgeable about a number of genres and techniques and the focus in this class is not on imitating the instructor's style but on developing your own style.
The emphasis will be on techniques for planning a composition prior to painting and looking at the use of colors in relation to one another. Think of the instructor as an art coach to help you reach your goals faster and as a resource to answer your questions, suggest alternatives and demonstrate a variety of techniques. This is a good class for making the leap from drawing to painting.
