For the "Drawing Gems" Basic course graduates, who would like to continue mastering gouache painting technique
Five week of intense practice and plenty of new jewellery templates. We will learn painting metal elements in different colors of gold and pave set elements. The program will help you to expand your jewellery illustration vocabulary and you will be able to approach illustrating elaborative high jewellery pieces. To practice new skills, we prepared for you a selection of iconic jewels with increasing complexity in every lesson. Each week you will have homework: exercise and few jewels to illustration. Additionally, you are welcome to draw your own design using elements similar to those specified.
Program is not available for independent learning. There will be weekly group feedback webinar, where Inesa will help you to understand how to improve your work further.
