After that they will transfer the drawing onto canvas and complete a thin underpainting, gradually moving to thicker paint over the next few days until they have completed a finished painting. The instructor will do daily demonstrations for the class to help them achieve a more thorough understanding of the process and techniques involved. Register here.
