This class will walk you through re-creating this Koala from the start to finish. Our focus is on proportions, shading and detailing. Students will learn how to break down an image to make it easier to transfer onto a small canvas while keeping the detail as well as learning to use various brushes for different effects and outcomes and the use of gel paints for control. This is a fun class with a gorgeous Australian native animal.
