Exploration of Layers

Artist Frank Forsman takes us on a journey through lots of mixed media layers to uncover two ladies. Frank talks through allowing yourself to not get caught up or "fall in love" too quickly but rather allow the layers to create the magic for you.

In this portrait class you can expect to go through many layers of marks, scribbles, and vibrant colors. Frank does a great job of sharing how to make modifications and end with an expressive portrait.
