Last week in one of my members meetings, students got a glimpse of my larger paintings, and with all their enthusiasm I was inspired, to offer a special pop up event on the dramatic orchid. Not your average floral painting, give your composition with a voice, and let your flowers sing.
Live pop up workshop
9-12pm PST Oct 8 Painting Demonstration $ 45
This pop up mini workshop includes, painting demonstration, reference material, and line drawing. The original painting was done on a single elephant size sheet, (25 3/4” X40”) in order to keep it manageable for students, I will be demonstrating on a half sheet of paper (22x15). Paint along or watch the recording. In the painting demonstration you will not be able to see other students.
Oct 15 9-10am PST Submission critique $10
For those that joined me submit your paintings from the workshop, then for the meeting, I will select a few to critique for the group. Here most likely you will be able to see other students
