SUMMARY

Join Alex as she walks you through the steps to create three wintery scenes. You will be shown how to depict snow on buildings using masking tape to help along the way. You will explore the use of acrylic ink for strong colour and flow, watercolour blooms, salt patterns and how to overcome any mistakes that are made in your paintings.
