In this class, I will be teaching you how to paint a Loose Acrylic Landscape using a reference photo while also adding your own personal touch to it. Learn everything you need to know to paint a landscape. I will cover the basics, from color mixing, brush techniques, dimension / form and much much more! This class is great for beginners but also for someone who needs to brush up on their fundamental skills in acrylic painting.

A former art teacher and now an independent full-time artist, I am so excited to be teaching on Skillshare and I truly hope you find this corner of your space comforting, inspiring, and encouraging! Can't wait to connect with you all!
