Have you ever wanted to paint flowers? If you have ever found inspiration in gardens and florist shops, then this is the workshop for you. Flowers are an incredibly rewarding and fun painting subject – but also a very challenging one! This one-day workshop will introduce you to some basic concepts and practices that will make flower painting a little less intimidating. We will focus specifically on how to simplify complex forms by squinting, following a clear value pattern, and thinking in geometric forms. We will also discuss selecting flowers and arranging them simply to create beautiful compositions for painting. Students will work in an alla-prima or wet-into-wet style, which builds confidence and painting skills quickly. This workshop will be an illuminating and inspirational introduction for the aspiring flower painter. All experience levels are welcome.
