Starry Eyed Workshop is Stephen Lursen's debut, large scale painting, video workshop. Watch, learn, and work along with him as he paints a 4' x 3' mixed media painting. He breaks each step down with wonderful explanations that clearly demonstrate every step of the process. With a total of 129 minutes (over 2 hours!) of instruction, this experience is the closest you can come to taking a full, in person workshop, with Stephen right here at Donna Downey Studios.
Concerned about working large for the first time? Don't be! You can do it! Furthermore, this painting is completely scaleable. You can use the lessons learned in this video and create a wide range of paintings, from very small to much larger than Stephen's 4'x3' canvas. No prior painting skills are necessary!
The included collaged element (the figures PDF) are downloadable in 6 sizes to empower you to pick the right size for your canvas.
