Aside from learning the techniques of painting a human form, you will also discover the joy that comes from engaging in the creative process. It's a magical ride full of ups, downs, twists and turns, that ultimately allows the mystery to unfold on the canvas from moment to moment. I'm so looking forward to facilitating your process. 

​​​You will need: 


  • "Golden" brand fluid acrylic paints; Titanium White, Quinacridone/Nickel Azo Gold, and Turquois (Phthalo).
  • "Liquitex" or "Golden" brand gloss medium and varnish.
  • Brushes: 1 small (1/2" wide) and 1 large (1" wide) 'filbert' brush, I small detail brush, and 3 2" craft style foam brushes.
  • Canvas: 24" x 36"

Fine Tune your Artistry!


In the basic course you will learn how to:


  • connect with your intuitive voice
  • intuitively choose colors for a wash
  • sketch a face in sketchbook and transfer it to a 24 x 36 inch canvas
  • blocking in the skin tones
  • apply darks, light, medium value skin tones
  • glazing
  • refining features
  • completing the background and applying varnish


The advanced course would cover a refresher of the basics if needed, but more about allowing intuition and imagination to flow through you onto a blank canvas.
