Fearless Flowers 3, Combined course, Independent Study
Masterclass, paint at your own pace, full course, all levels are encouraged designed for Intermediate - advanced
This course focuses on developing two advanced compositions, we will look at how to transform the reference photos and how to translate them into a more dramatic painting. We will take a composition that breaks the rules and is divided in half bridge the two sides with color and shadow and turn it into a harmonious and dynamic painting.
Learn to layer with warm, cool and complementary colors to deepen the color intensity. I'll show you how to better retain your highlights, direct the viewers eye, simplify the overall composition, and how to avoid those thick hard edges.

Student's painting Annette Rink
"You deconstruct complicated photographs into a jumble of abstract shapes then magically transform it into a gorgeous painting. I don't know how you do that! I don't have that creative vision I guess. Your videos and step-by-step directions are learner oriented and the best quality I have found " April Jackson
"I have become addicted to Birgit’s classes and am looking forward to the challenges that I know will be coming in this class. I am so thankful to have found Birgit’s classes. I love her style and the positive reinforcement she gives to all. This gives me the opportunity and motivation to keep painting!" Susan Cauddill
"I am a professor in leadership and change management myself and have an intensive job as dean of a business school. Patience and stillness are some of the skills I need to improve so this space with Birgit and the watercolors (that needs a lot of patience) are a life coaching course! Thanks so much, Birgit!" Camelia
"I am having the time of my life, and have improved my skills more rapidly than any other time over the past 25+ years on my own." Sue Warnock
"I am happy to be taking another course from you. Thank you for taking the time to teach us all." Jeanne Hall
"The best investment I ever made watercolor-wise was in the large round brushes you recommended in other classes. I pretty much only use those now, and my painting has improved tremendously. Thanks so much!" Susan Stevens
