I have always been fascinated with nature, but especially trees. I love taking bits and pieces of different elements and finding ways to combine them together, to tell a story.

In this class, I will show you how to take a photo and create a painting around it. Regardless of the photo that you wish to use, (you will choose your own photo image(s) none are provided) I will cover different ways of achieving a focal point out of them. We will then proceed to create a book of your painting. A place for you to journal, sketch,watercolor, scrapbook, etc. With the steps that I cover in class, it will have you going home and digging out your photos to use in a whole new and creative way.

DISCLAIMER: The bezel shown on the cover of two images will not be taught in this class. There will be a separate bezel class taught at a later date.
