By Cindy Briggs

Take the fear out of painting figures as you discover how to mix skin tones in watercolor and use layered brushwork to suggest drapes and folds in fabric. Progress from using tracings to drawing a figure without using a guide. Learn to see the important relationships between shape and color that help to make painting figures a breeze. All levels are welcome.
