Process: The Complete Guide To Alla Prima Painting For Oil, Acrylic, And Watercolor Painters

This is a package of all the three eBooks in the Virtual Art Academy® Building Block™: Process PLUS the twelve eBooks in the Virtual Art Academy® Building Block™: Materials & Equipment.

The Process Building Block covers the step-by-step mechanical procedures of creating a painting. I have put these course units into a separate Building Block because, whereas all the other Building Blocks are mostly independent of the medium you are using, this Building Block is specific to oils, acrylics, or watercolors.
