NEW Master Classes in 2018 — If you have taken Sally's workshops before and want to build on the numerous principles discussed, this new class continues where the previous workshops left off. It begins with a review of painting principles including optical mixing of layered color, essential elements of strong composition and the effects of light. We also focus on the later stages of painting, learning to harmonize color masses while developing the ability really see and mix color, especially those that are nuanced and subtle. Finally we will explore the finishing touches that turn paintings into personal statements.
