The course project

Each of the course videos focuses on a different aspect of painting. At the end of each video is a suggested project to practice the lecture skills. Please try out as many of these projects as you'd like. For example, the video on creating the illusion of space suggests a project to use a variety soft and hard edges, to create deep or shallow space in your painting. Try out the ideas on your current painting, or start a new one based on the lecture concepts. 

To help with projects please note there are important pdf resources you can download. These include a pdf book, a Table of Contents with suggested projects, and some supplemental documents for two of the course videos. References for more information are mentioned at the end of each lecture video. 

Welcome to my course!  Please don't hesitate to send me a message if you have any issues or questions. Enjoy and happy creating!
