Workshop for painting Dark Skintones

I've just added a new online class.
Well, it is not really new because it was slipped into my first workshop, Faces: All Norah'S as an extra.
I now offer this class for painting darker skintones as a stand alone class.

All Class Videos and lesson material is presented at the beginning of this class. You will have access to them any time. This class will continue for an indefinite period and you are welcome to stay as long as you like and take as long as you wish to paint.
There are eight videos that total 92 minutes of instruction.

You will learn how to transfer images as background layers;
but mainly this is about painting darker faces using Folk Art craft paints.
5 x 5 canvas or substrate of your choice
small size is preferred
Folk Art colors used: Maple Syrup
Ultramarine Blue
Pure Orange
Italian Sage
True Burgundy
Golden Liquid Acrylic used:
Bone Black
Turquois (Phthalo)
Burnt Umber Light
Golden heavy body Zinc White or a Folk Art white
Golden Mediums: Matte Medium #3530 and Soft Gel (Matte) #3013
Please note: If you have taken the Faces: All Norah'S workshop ($65.00), this is part of that workshop.
You won't be able to navigate until you buy a workshop and then sign up.
But you can see what a great site it is and watch the photo slide show.
Join me,
