     A strong understanding of natural color and lighting is an important asset to any environment artist or fine art painter. In this 2-day workshop, Mike Hernandez will share his methods for using gouache and digital media to develop painting compositions and designs.
    Through demo and lecture, he will show you how to address every aspect of your work, from value, composition design, shape and color hierarchies, paint texture, brushwork, and more.
    This 8-hour workshop is valuable for all artists, regardless of medium. An understanding of digital painting is desired but not necessary to participate since this class is more about a demonstration in composition, shape, color, and lighting design and much more through the use of a digital medium.
    This is a great workshop for anyone interested in painting and would like to learn how to capture a rich sense of natural lighting and color into their artworks, digital or traditional.
    Class dates: August 1st and August 8th from 10 am to 4 pm EDT.
    Students will share work during the week in the class forum by midnight Friday, August 6th.
