DESCRIPTION OF LESSONS

LESSON 1 - ABSTRACT FLORALS IN GOUACHE

In our first main lesson, we get our creative juices flowing by working with gouache (or other water media) to start a couple of small paintings.  I will demonstrate two of these in my lesson.  I find it rather helpful to complete at least 3-6 small paintings at a time.  This is a great way for you to explore variety and to allow drying time while you work on others.

 

I will begin this lesson by sharing a quick demo of how I work on several at a time.  Then I move to a real time video of completing 2 warm up paintings using the same reference photo.  We will then take one of these smaller, warm ups to create a larger painting in Lesson 2.  This is also an excellent practice to use when creating a series of paintings!

LESSON 2 - ABSTRACT FLORALS IN OIL

In Lesson 2, we will be using a limited palette to practice tonal variation and color mixing skills. We will also be using this palette for part 2 of this lesson.  The most important lesson that you will learn from this lesson is that LESS IS MORE!  Meaning less color choices can really build color mixing skills.  You are welcome to use oil paints, or acrylic paints and glazing medium for this lesson.

 

In the second part of this lesson, I’m demonstrating how I paint a flower in oils, using the same reference photo from the previous lesson. You will learn to squint, push paint around, take risks and embrace your mistakes.  You will practice being loose and tight to bring variety to your artwork.  Most importantly, you will learn as you go!  Be open to the unknown!
