About this Course

Come with me on this mini class journey and learn how to create sweet Baby animals using a simple composition, colors, and style. I'll show you how to lay down color for a striking, rich background. We will layer on top with gesso to create a placeholder for our animals. We will be exploring and sketching in our journals beforehand to work on shapes and to decide what animals we want to create.
