You’ll begin with exercises on contour drawing designed to provide you with a way to loosen up and become familiar with your subject. Then explore color mixing, composition, values, edges, brushwork, saving whites and using negative space as Charles guides you through several paintings from start to finish.

In this preview watch as Charles does two paintings to explore how good values and good color are more important to a painting than its composition.
