You will learn how to match colours accurately, refine the shapes, introduce hard and soft edges, add details, and utilize techniques like glazing and scumbling. Throughout the 2 sessions there will be an open discussion, lots of handy tips, and you can ask as many questions as you like. They’re always welcome!
