Another very enjoyable acrylic landscape session with Debra exploring more aspects of how to approach composition & colour. Helpful information and sources to work with as 2 hours flies by and these give the opportunity to carry on working individually in your own time. Debra is an inspiring artist who shares her knowledge in a generous easy to absorb way.
