New Lesson Done!

Another Traditions lesson done! These lessons have been just wonderful from the start! The modules are broken into four parts. Module A is the beginning one, then Mod. B, which is a little more advanced. Then Mod. C is next, and finally Mod D for advanced painters. I am in Mod. D now and this is the fourth lesson. Each Module has 10 lessons teaching everything from mixing your own colors, intensity, value, blending, and on and on. As I said, I have learned so much. Some of the lessons, the subject matter we paint isn't exactly what I would have chosen myself, but we learn the techniques for a reason. Soon in this Module, we will be studying designing our own work. The classes are offered online and I highly recommend them to anyone. The Decoart Traditions paints are the highest quality and we are taught color theory along with everything else. I'll never have to buy another mixed bottle of paint again.....I know how to mix my own colors to match any paint color out there. Thus, I don't have to buy tons of bottles of paint colors to paint a pattern! If anyone might be interested in learning more about Traditions and the education system they have, just drop me an email. I've been studying for almost two years now, and it has been quite the journey!!
Stay warm out there!

Wow! You did a wonderful job! That REALLY looks like glass and I know that is hard to do. What base colors do you start with because I know that different artists all start with different base colors. Good job!!!

Sue, Hi! Thanks for posting about the online class. I'm actually taking it! But it's so far over my head and isn't focusing on what I need and want to learn. I'm muddling through it and am just hoping to find some additional sources to clarify things for me and ones that focus more on my needs.
