SUMMARY

Join Susan to paint this delightful turtle and learn how light behaves underwater by deploying an easy, wet-in-wet underwater background with scratching. Susan will show you how to check proportions with dynamic lines and will discuss the use of masking fluid – where is it really needed? You will finish with a harmonising painting using only a limited palette (4 colours).
