stage-1-tulip-close-up.jpgLearn how to create three dimension - Art teacher Sue Pruett has designed this class so the student can reinforce their blending skills. The class materials cover 'wet in wet' blending and a first stage grisaille (grey scale) underpainting is the first of the many valuable exercises included in this class. The grisaille underpainting helps the student recognize the form of the flower and paint a more three dimensional painting. It sounds a lot more complex than it really is, but once you see how the teacher demonstrates these steps, you will be thrilled with what you learn.

    I have always liked a smooth blended look of some paintings. I didn't know how it was done. I learned so much about the blending techniques needed for painting realism. Now I understand how to go about this. Good teaching demonstrations and I enjoyed the video lessons. Very nice presentation.

    I've taken this class as well as the black and white tulip class. The paintings are done with different techniques. Great to have the knowledge of both techniques. The videos were easy to follow and I loved my results.
