Portrait of a Toucan Keeping Transparent and Getting Non Streaky Darks
About This Class
In this class you’ll be painting a Toucan portrait
In this lesson you will learn to
Keep clean using transparent colours
get strong darks without leaving streaks
The class is broken down into simple easy to follow sections so that you can pace yourself and enjoy the process.
