Sunday 4th November – creating backgrounds with Qu Leilei

 In November, we had another exciting and informative day with Qu Leilei. This was another techniques—not subjects—class.

Leilei brought a number of examples of backgrounds with him and demonstrated how to create them for our own use and then offered advice on how to use them or further enhance them. There will be an article on techniques in the January newsletter.
