If you have completed parts 1 and 2 of Mastering Decorative Painting Basics you now have beautifully based and shaded blueberries, leaves, and flowers and are ready to put the finishing touches on your creation.

Now it’s time to add the accessories to your painting. In part 3, I’ll provide you with the elements that pull your design together, giving it life and interest. We’ll learn to use these design elements to guide your eye through your painting and give harmony to your design.

We’ll cover:
• The secrets to smooth and graceful line work. Using line work to unify your design.
• Flower centers with wet-on-wet blending
• Dry brushing hilites
• Blossom ends on blueberries
• Varnishing to protect your painting

This class completes the basic techniques offered with this blueberry and flower painting. Hopefully it also leaves you with a craving for more art theory and techniques. Practicing these skills will provide you with a good background on which to build your life long creative journey.

The Supply List is the same for all three classes so you may already have these supplies if you have taken Part 1 and/or Part 2
