Class Description

Here in New Zealand the types of postboxes seen is very open to the imagination, right through to even to old microwave ovens! In this class we see more or less an old standard post box that has been abandoned by the house owners. In my imagination I saw two sparrows that had taken it over to use as a nest and raise a family.

In this lesson you will learn:

1.  How to add  life to the post box
2.  How to fade the background out
3.  How to show the tonal ranges
4.   How to bring in different colours to brighten up the box5.  How to paint the birds
