SUMMARY

In this prelude to her full, 2-3 hour workshop webinar, paint along with Kasia to paint a simple but dramatic sunset. You will learn how to mix colours and create soft transition between them, to make sure the sun in your painting is really shining :) You will also learn how to work on wet paper and use thickness of watercolour paint to build your composition.
