You will learn how to capture light with your paintbrush as paint sunlight, reflective light, and colorful shadows. Then, we’ll utilize the colors above and reflect them into the water. We’ll focus on mingling colors, color choices, calligraphic brush work, and mixing colors. A tracing of the scene is provided so you can start painting right from the beginning.
