Florals in Bloom
There is no better time to pick up your paintbrush than summer so get ready to come and unleash your creativity and learn with me as I guide you in the creation of your own floral masterpieces.
Florals in Bloom is filled to the brim with content - over nine hours and 63 videos to take you on a fabulous adventure through all types of floral creations.
Over the years, I’ve immersed myself in painting gorgeous blooms and I know that many share my universal love of flowers. Whether I am painting in alcohol inks, encaustic wax, or other mediums such as acrylics and oils, I’ve always had a soft spot for florals. The more expressive, the better!
Imagine yourself sitting side-by-side with me.
My online classes allow my students to feel like I am right there working through each step of the process. Very "unscripted" and real, my online classes are a combination of me talking and explaining the process as well as many video demonstrations.
In every video, you'll see me showing you exactly how I create art - nothing is held back and all of my techniques are revealed. On some demonstrations, the inks will do their "magic" with beautiful fluidity. In other lessons, you'll watch several step-by-step instructions that take thoughtful commitment and practice. You’ll see it all.
In Florals in Bloom, I will walk you through key fundamental elements in thinking about florals. Color studies, learning how to make perfect stems and leaves, and step-by-step in modern floral design will be at the beginning of your journey. Setting The Foundation is full of important and inspirational information for you, as well.
Every module explores different techniques and designs of flowers whether thinking of abstract or more realistic flowers.
Each demonstration takes you through my thinking process and you will see how I use brushes with alcohol inks and how the addition of mixed media in our designs adds such depth and excitement to your pieces.
This class has something for everyone and the possibilities are endless. Whether you want to paint small or go bigger, this class offers you a place to nurture your own style and invites creative expression in floral design.
As always, my classes are about joyfully discovering the energy, motion, flow and the beauty of the alcohol inks and beyond. No two paintings will be alike and from the beginning, your voice and your style will brilliantly shine through each of your paintings.
Whether you are one of my many alumni or a new student to my classes, you will soon understand that experimentation and exploration is an important part of my classes and no matter what your skill level my classes encourage creativity - and FUN!
