Floral Still Life with Elizabeth Floyd

September 28 - November 2


Wednesdays 10am-1:00pm6 Weekly Classes
online via Zoom

Capturing the beauty of flowers is a wonderful way to connect with the season.  In this online course, we will gather together on Zoom to paint, connect and support each other while exploring floral still-life painting. Over the six weeks, we will work on several floral still-life set ups with each set up focusing on a specific exercise designed to investigate composition and color theory, the mechanics of color mixing, and brushstroke essentials. Then, we will progress to completing a floral painting utilizing the lessons learned from the exercises.  Photo references of flowers grown in my garden will be provided.

We will cover in depth how edge quality heightens the visual expression of your painting. The three technique lessons will explore lost and found edges, the hierarchy of edge types, and how this hierarchy of edge types is affected by value and color relationships.

This class is more than just how to paint a specific flower arrangement, instead it’s about teaching you the tools and fundamentals that give you freedom to paint anything you want.
