Please note:  This tutorial was created years ago and while it has assisted many artists worldwide, and shown how simple advanced techniques are, the videos do not reflect the latest technologies and brilliant resolutions with which we have created our Online Art Courses.

The painting you'll create - in your own hand and your own style (that's how the techniques work) - is pictured here, this one created by Robert, to give you an idea of your end result.
