Painting the Floral

Painting the Floral

Flowers are like people.  They move, they breathe, they have their own personalities.  Mary will take you into the world of painting these living objects of beauty.  Learn how to set up a floral-based still life and how to capture the beauty of the flower both individually and as part of an overall combination. Mary will explore the world of flower painting from an aesthetic as well as technical point of view.  Color and its relationships, value and edges will be covered through demonstration and individual attention. Mary will also show you how to "reset the pose," as unlike models, flowers tend to want to move around right when you want them to hold still.  A colorful and informative workshop awaits.  www.maryqian.com
