In this 2hrs+ session, we will touch on the basics of colour theory and mixing, work through the stages of 'blocking in', layering up to add depth and finally adding in the details in the final pass. Emily will show you some of the techniques required to help you push your paintings into the hyper-real, using a photo of the majestic Peacock butterfly as a starting point.
