Illustration with Liv Bargman

Regular price £60.00

Explore illustration with local illustrator Liv Bargman. Over a full day, Liv will help you navigate character exploration, mood, atmosphere, tone. lighting, texture and, objects. 
You will work on approaches to placing characters within a scene, drawing on mood of inhabitable settings. You will look towards how atmosphere is presented in other work, and how to truly engage with the reader or viewer through emotion and tone.
