This six week on-line workshop is designed for those that have taken one of Brian's earlier fundamentals workshops or are an advanced beginner or intermediate painter already comfortable with their medium.  We will focus on the three fundamentals: value, colour, and perspective.  Each session will be videotaped and the recordings will be available for repeat viewing for two weeks.

Brian's demonstrations and exercises will be done in acrylic but you are free to use the medium of your choice.

Brian will also cover the use of image management software to create interesting reference material and digital drawing software to use in planning your work.
