Are your subjects coming along well, but the backgrounds in your work provide a challenge? Do they distract from the main subject rather than support it? This class will concentrate on some specific techniques you can do to help you succeed with backgrounds. Hard & soft edges, lost lines, pouring, washes, lifting and more will be taught along with color theory and atmospheric perspective to help your backgrounds do just that.... fade into the background. Wet and dry media welcome. Instructor will adapt the above principles to your chosen medium.
