Greetings & thank you, I found your videos inspiring & insightful. I do enjoy abstract mixed media & love the combination of realism, they work brilliantly together. Your videos are well done showing the processes for each layer. I always thought my brushstrokes were clumsy so i would smooth & blend away any brushstrokes i made or cover them with drips. However, after watching the videos i am now going to leave my brushstrokes & not blend them out, such wonderful advice. For anyone wondering if they should take this course 'Absolutely do it'. This has been enjoyable & an honour to watch, Kia ora anō = (thanks again). Angela Heni
So Fun and So Much Good Info!
I have had inks and have experimented with them in the past, but this helped me understand them and how I can incorporate them so much more. I love mixed media and adding layers to my art using different materials. These classes really inspired me to incorporate more abstract techniques in my art, and I absolutely love it. The result looks incredible, and it is so freeing and fun. Working from abstract to fine detail takes so much of the stress out of the painting process and warms you up to work into the fine detail. This contains such a wealth of information, and the instruction is great! I love seeing the time lapse and hearing the many tips from line work to brush strokes and color theory. Cannot wait for more classes!
