A messy canvas never hurt anybody! Don't worry about failure, let’s just have some fun and see what we can discover. This class is going to be DIFFERENT from any Dan has ever taught. We’re going to start at the “abstract” end of the continuum to discover what REAL painting feels like, and then add realism little-by-little. Who knows? Something might even look pretty good!
