Wildflower Workshop Review

Ten students joined me on a soggy Sunday for an afternoon of learning and painting. Everyone left the workshop after four hours with two wonderful paintings. I was so pleased with how well everyone did. I split the time up into two parts...the first half we concentrated on painting a meadow and ways to add wildflowers to a field without them looking cartoonish or stiff. The second half we worked on more intimate landscapes and painted 'portraits' of wildflowers. It was a great day to spend with my fellow artists! Here are a few comments from my students:

"I had to tell you how much I enjoyed the workshop yesterday. You did an excellent job preparing and teaching. I learned so much"

It was so much fun as I knew it would be! Everything was perfect-the class, your friends, the food. When I read your blog I always think- I want to know them they are having the best time ever and it's true! I would like to take your shell/ocean class(Nov.22) if you have an opening for it. Happy Painting
