Painting Flowers with Confidence

Online on Zoom | 9am - 12noon Arizona Time (Mountain Standard Time) | 3 Days

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 have the chance to paint themselves while Matt offers individual guidance and critique on composition, drawing, colour harmony, colour temperature and values.
