Our photo is enlarged to the size of our canvas and then traced on a clear plastic sheet.  Mistakes are immediately spotted as we use the overlay to check the work as it is painted. Use any medium you like. Students should have some basic painting experience in their chosen medium. For more information, go to www.classesbygainor.com.
