This discussion will define the subjects used for the lessons topics which are: brush techniques, drawing for painting, composition, colour, contrast, glazing, under glazing, creating the illusion of transparency, creating the illusion of volume, negative and positive painting and how to combine all these elements to create successful paintings.
