“Night Market” by Lynn Ferris



(No Refunds)



Good use of light and shadow can change a painting from ordinary to extraordinary. Using a limited palette of mainly transparent paints, students will learn to design with light, recognize light sources and the shadows they create, add drama and luminosity. Lynn provides handouts, reference materials, and lots of personal attention.
