Floral Painting Workshop


with Donna Bird

Calendar Mar 28, 2023 at 10 am


Capturing flowers in all their glory is a worthy but often challenging task.  This one day class will teach students how to approach this subject by learning to see flowers as abstract shapes in order to achieve realistic results.  Topics will include:  mixing color to achieve more vibrant results, flower arranging, brushwork, lighting and backgrounds.  We will also look at current floral artists as well as historical masters and their approach to floral painting.  This class is best suited for oil or acrylic painters.  Easels will be provided but students will need to bring their own supplies.  Supply suggestions will be sent to registrants.  Bring a lunch!

10:00 am - 4:00 pm, Tuesday, March 28, 2023.
