Thanks theonides for an amazing time !! We learned so much, and the four of us had such a great bonding time! We learned how to be a healthy artist, how to gesso, how to keep good brushes, how to make clean colors, how to be efficient, and most importantly how to make a good quality painting. It was extremely challenging painting on 24X36 but it was all worth it. You really pushed us to use thick bold brushstrokes. Thanks for sharing your process and really opening my eyes! :)
