Being an artist is a solo journey and you have to adjust to its solitary nature. But after working on a painting, do you find it difficult to see what you’re doing? You may need another set of eyes for perspective. Do you wish someone could occasionally look over your shoulder to provide an opinion or steer you in a good direction?
Sally will advise you with composition and concept, push boundaries, make adjustments to the value structure, fix the color, encourage you to keep going or help you stop before you take it too far. In short, Sally will be there to help you create your own painting and to advise you on technical concerns with your chosen medium. These short-term semi-private mentor painting sessions will give you the boost you need to make positive breakthroughs for your future paintings.
