What is the prize?
Our sponsor this week is Anna Mason’s Nature Studio. One random winner will receive a 6 month subscription to her online school! I’ve been a member of Anna’s online school for almost 2 years. The tutorials are very detailed, includes outlines, and step by step video instruction. Her list of tutorials are amazing. I want to do all of them!
She offers a free Pear tutorial, as well as Calla Lily tonal drawing, Realistic Poppy, and Loose bumblebee. Check them out! Follow her instructions, and it’s amazing what you can do!
Anna says, “You don’t need ‘talent’ to do what you see here. You need to practice using a method you can trust. It’s quicker and easier than you think.”
