She shows you how to use dots, fine lines, brushstrokes, black and white, color—a mixture of mediums and techniques—to suggest:glass cast iron adobe and brick sunrise and sunset driftwood leaf textures basketry surf and ocean waves enamelware rainbows wood grain distant trees eggs and onions animal hair and dozens of other textures! You'll learn how to use materials, from technical pens to paint brushes, colored inks to liquid acrylics.
