Miniature Painting with Ardis DeFreece

NOTE:
THIS CLASS WILL BE HELD ONLINE
THIS CLASS CAN BE TAKEN ASYNCHRONOUSLY

Students will learn the fun and technique of painting miniatures. This class is appropriate for painters with a beginner to intermediate skill level. It is helpful if students have taken at least one painting class. Students can work in Acrylic or Oil or both. Each week we will paint a view or an object with new techniques. For students who have taken previous miniature painting classes with me, these are new subjects. Students can also work from their own objects and photos.

Week 2: Fruit
Week 3: Wet evening with light
Week 4: Birds
Week 5: Sunset
Week 6: Atmospheric seascape
Week 7: Backlit trees
Week 8: Curiosities
