This class focuses on flower painting in oils. Participating artists will learn to create an alla-prima floral painting from life that celebrates the beauty of flowers with freshness, sensitivity, and lively detail. Participants will paint a small bouquet of their own design using a direct painting method over the course of three and a half days. Andy will guide artists from every stage of the process with daily demonstrations and personal critiques. Essential botany parts, materials, paint mixing, light and shadow patterns, values will also be discussed throughout each session.
This class size is limited to 10 participants to guarantee individual guidance and critique.
