• how to translate your design into exciting and endless color possibilities

• how to simplify – know what’s important detail- and what’s not
• how to start out with large shapes rather than smaller details
• how to work with bigger brushes for a more gestural quality
• how to hold your brush for a bolder application of paint
• how to paint small but necessary details with big brushes
• how to paint with fewer strokes for a bolder look
