The Serious Business of Painting Believable Fantasy with Melissa Mary Duncan

Sat, September 1, 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Sat, September 1, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Discover Melissa’s methodology for creating believable characters from Myth, Faerie and Legend using pencil, watercolour and gouache.

Join Melissa as she emphasizes the importance of drawing from life while demonstrating how she takes a piece from a simple concept or inspiration through to a finished, highly detailed and resolved watercolour painting.

She will also demonstrate how to stretch watercolour paper, transfer drawings, paint skin, hair, fur, textiles and plants. Learn how to reflect upon the importance of knowing your subject, and how to convincingly create satisfying and cohesive fantasy worlds.

August 27, 2018 – Please note: The 10:30 AM demonstration is now full and no further registration will be taken. Thank you for your interest! Note: there is still room on the 1:00 PM demonstration.

Space is limited and registration is required.
