Workshop Outline

Day One:

Mount masa paper onto your canvas.
Leave your prepared canvas to dry overnight.
Practice the technique of painting on masa paper on a small prepared canvas that I will provide.

Day Two:

Commence sketching/transferring and painting on your own prepared, dried, and mounted masa paper.
I say "commence" because you will probably need more time to finish - unless you want to stay until your painting is complete. Be warned, I turn the lights out at midnight.
