Mastering Flower Impressions




Friday, Saturday & Sunday

 March 8, 9 &10, 2024

9:00 am - 4:00 pm



You will learn a variety of techniques to help you master flower painting. What characteristics make up roses, peonies, pansies, mums or daisies? How do you simplify lilacs or hydrangeas? How important is background to create mood and add depth into your arrangement? A well-established underpainting is essential. Finish by creating a beautiful garden scene. Design better flowers in a simplified way. Use better color, stronger values and explore more lost and found edges. Learn how to create the most impact, to dazzle your viewer. There will be different flower selections for those who have taken this workshop previously.
