You'll explore elements of style from the master's love of bold composition and design to his later habit of simplifying his paintings, and with Betsy's inspiring instruction to lead the way, you'll be amazed at what you can create. Starting with bold, flat areas of color, Betsy shows you how to create a foundation and structure perfect for adding bright patterns later on. Then take your work to the next level by adding symbols that have meaning for you, giving the painting a personal, expressive touch. Finally, Betsy demonstrates how to bring it all together for a finished painting you'll be proud of!
