Photorealism is a genre of art that encompasses painting, drawing and other graphic media, in which an artist studies a photograph and then attempts to reproduce the image as realistically as possible in another medium.
In this workshop, Melissa will share with you her award winning techniques for transforming a photograph into a masterpiece of fiber art.
