The mood and ambience of a flower painting can change dramatically with the change of one variable, the background. From somber and meditative to bright and energetic, flower paintings can portray many moods, without any change in blooms. This 2 session workshop explores backgrounds with flower bouquets. Amy will paint a demo in oil in each session and review all student work. Acrylic painters are welcome, but oil will be the primary material discussed. She will also discuss painting wet into wet and loose brush strokes. She will provide the image each week, but participants are also welcome to make their own setups.
Amy Brnger has painted still life, flowers and landscape for as long as she has been an artist. She uses nature as a vehicle, or an excuse, to paint, and enjoys painting places and things with and about which she is familiar or curious. With her interiors, still life and landscape are often paired together, as both influence one another equally. These subjects are strongly related, since the kinds of still life objects she often chooses to paint are themselves directly derived from the landscape: flowers; leaves; fruits and vegetables; bird’s nests, etc. She also enjoys painting flowers and food on their own.
