About this event

Painting sunflowers provides a unique challenge for an artist. Because of their translucent petals, bright colors and quickly changing shapes, artists are forced to be more decisive than ever in order to capture their subject before it has changed. In this class, students will spend five days making their own floral painting which we will also use as a vehicle for discussing various concepts relating to oil painting in general. The first day will start with a demonstration by the instructor. In this first day’s demo, emphasis will be put on how to begin our paintings well, in order to set ourselves up for success throughout the painting process. We will also be talking extensively about color mixing, paint handling, materials and how our light source interacts with the unique qualities of flower petals, giving them the special characteristics that make us so drawn to their beauty. Whether you are brand new to oil painting, or a more advanced painter looking to refine your skills, this workshop will be a great opportunity to take your understanding to the next level. Sunflowers and a vase/vessel will be provided to students.
