I love the usage of minimal colours to create such beautiful paintings! francoise is a great teacher and I love how detailed are her instructions! one of the best teacher on skillshare.. Her instructions are very clear, the color mixing and tree exercise before starting the actual project, is extremely helpful. From color pallette, to giving practice examples, to giving us thing to remember at the end of the video everything was well organised. Last but not least, the end result is quite satisfying too!
