Flowers have always been a compelling subject for the artist. Their endless variety of forms and colors, as well as delicate textures, challenge every aspect of the painter’s art. This workshop will introduce students to the fundamental perceptions and skills required to successfully capture these delightful but elusive subjects.
Each day will begin with a short demonstration by John. He will discuss strategies for drawing convincing floral forms and painting the subtle color-value relationships required to express the light and atmosphere of the arrangement in space. Students will then paint from a fresh flower arrangement with John providing focused individual instruction. Finally we will spend time discussing broader themes of effective arrangements for strong pictorial compositions.
Suitable for all media. Open to all levels, no experience necessary! Ages 12+
