Here are some of the techniques you will learn in this course:

  • How to create an under painting using wet in wet – wet color onto wet paper
  • How to create details using wet on dry – wet color on to dry paper
  • How to create shape and contour in folds of skin by manipulating hair markings and dark and light values.
