This course is open to students of all levels of painting ability. Students will learn basic floral painting techniques, with an emphasis on values and composition. Layering and blending color into soft edges will also be taught. The course will focus on painting from close-up photo references of flowers in an artistic setting with spectacular results. A critique and class discussion will be held at the end of the session.
Robert will conduct classes online similarly to how he teaches in person. He will devote the first session to a demonstration, using a camera mounted above his work space. The second half of the workshop will be devoted to student painting. He will offer a critique at the end of the session. Students will work from a reference photo supplied by Robert via email. If a student chooses to work from their own photo, it will need to be pre-approved by Robert. Students will need to load the Zoom app onto their computers prior to the class.
