Cindy will take you through a variety of step-by-step approaches as we paint this bouquet in watercolors. You will learn how to get in your underpainting then layer up colors to create a finished work with captivating color and light. If we have any spare time, we'll do a quick sketch of market flowers too. The creative random placement and groupings of the flowers by the flower growers make them inviting - soon you'll be visiting the flower market to design you own images to paint.

"Painting Flowers with Confidence"
September 6-8, 2022
 

Flower painting has always been one of the most widely loved and practiced artforms, now you will have the opportunity to learn the techniques and methods to create beautiful florals that sing with life. Matt will start with a demonstration each day talking through the techniques required to paint this tricky subject both from life and from photos. The main emphasis of this workshop will be giving you the tools you need to create realistic flowers using loose impressionistic brush work that are filled with light. Matt's method is to simplify first, establishing values and then focusing on colour temperature to lift your flowers from the canvas. Students will receive individual guidance on composition, drawing, colour harmony, colour temperature and values.
