Walking into Kathy’s workshop is like walking into a garden. Kathy drives two hours down to Tucson to get an abundance of fresh flowers for the students to choose from to create a natural garden set up unique to their vision. Kathy starts each day with a demo, emphasizing the importance of design with a strong block in. She will talk about how to get transparency in flowers with clean color, how to block in leaves as a mass, and creating value patterns. For one of the demos, Kathy will bring in a dry plein air painting to demonstrate and talk about how to finish it in the studio using photos. The afternoons will be for the students to set up their own “garden still life” with Kathy assisting. Kathy is so happy to be one of the Putney Painters -painting, laughing, and sharing a special friendship with Richard Schmid and Nancy Guzik for 15 years.
