Painting Flowers and Fruit – Oil/Acrylic – Harry Neely – Monday and Tuesday, April 8 & 9, 10:00-3:00 $67/$75/$83
This is a class for oil and acrylic floral painters, but all painters will gain insight into color, composition and values. We will look at traditional and contemporary flower paintings to discover their palettes and way of working. You will practice mixing the colors that bring light and life into your paintings; getting the big picture; and solving the value patterns. This is an analytical way of solving the most common problems we see in our critique sessions. Along with this we will talk about pricing your painting. Come and join us for a two days of adventure in painting. Intermediate
