6 - week interactive course

What's different about this course

Focus on two different paintings that seem worlds apart, with entirely different approaches.

Suggested for those that have already taken one of my previous floral courses or have some level of experience with the medium to feel comfortable.

White Rhododendron

We begin with a white rhododendron and learning how to direct the viewers eye with the edges of the brushstroke and shapes. The primary challenge is to draw the viewer into the center of the flower, and curling petals gently back.


Peach Peony Stretch your skills

What sets this painting apart, is that it will take you out of your comfort zone, and teach you to harmonize color and shift between both positive and negative painting.
