Painting a Fantasy Illustration in Gouache
Learn to create a sense of richness and depth in a fantasy illustration in this live 2-hour art class with artist Francesco Simone Savi (@francesco_simone_savi). First, you’ll practice layering washes and glazing. Then Francesco will help you explore alternative techniques like salt and spattering to create exciting textures. Finally, you’ll add finishing touches with coloured pencils.
