Learn to pull together the many elements of composition, color and paint application to create a satisfying and personal, floral painting.

We’ll start with simple compositions featuring a single flower type.  Our focus will be on simplifying the blooms to their essentials and relating them to each other, their foliage, vase, and the canvas edges.

Next, we’ll add objects to the set up and explore the subtleties of orchestrating them to form a pleasing whole.  We’ll study shape, interval, color movement and variety, brushwork, edges and more.   

The goal of this workshop is to make you see the full potential of the canvas space and to use it to make paintings that unfold to reveal surprises, harmonies, and rewards for the viewer.

Our subject will be the floral still life, but the keen and sensitive eye that you develop will be invaluable for improving your paintings in any genre.

You may work from Ingrid’s photos or, better still, from set ups in your own studios.
