This painting class is about how to make flowers pop off the page and draw you in. Painting petals white, red, blue, or whatever colors you want can be a lot of fun. We will explore the peony and fuchsia, or you can bring your own photograph as your subject matter. You will create the dynamic structure and ruffles of the dramatic leaves. You will learn what really works for painting all kinds of flowers and enjoy the process. For those who do not have the colors I suggest, and will not have time to purchase them, I will have them available to purchase in class for your convenience, on a first come, first serve basis.
