What You'll Get

Render flowers richly and beautifully in oil paints! Discover how to achieve vibrant, confident-looking artworks that convey a sense of light, shadow, and sculptural form. Color mixing and brush stroke application will also be a major focus, to avoid muddiness and over-blending. 


You will start with a paint-along demonstration, then work on your own choice of subject.
