Wednesday and Thursday: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
June 19 - 20, 2013
Prepare to get up close and personal with flowers and green growing things in this two-day workshop. On day one, you will work in the studio learning how to maintain clear, vibrant color, achieve that backlit sunglow, and capture the personality of individual blooms.
On day two, take your new skills into a spectacular garden to practice what you have learned. After her initial demonstration, Kate will be on hand to help with subject selection and setup for those who are new to plein aire painting. She will also answer questions, make suggestions, and critique each sutdent individually.
Thank you for coming to my Petal Pushers workshop. Iím looking forward to painting with you.
You will need to bring a lunch or break for lunch at one of the local restaurants each day. Also be sure to bring enough drinking water on Wednesday. Painting outdoors is thirsty business!
Two colors I find to be really great for catching those glowing autumn golds and oranges are M. Grahamís Cadmium Yellow Light and Cadmium Red. They are partial stains and take glazing beautifully. You might want to have these on your palette.
Below is both a Materials List and a list of What I Use. Please check them both out. I think Iíve covered most everything, but if you have any questions, feel free to email me or call me at the numbers listed at the sheet bottoms, and Iíll see if I can help you out.
I can hardly wait to see you all there!
