Wild For Wildflowers
June 12-13, 2021
Paint beautiful wildflowers with pastel. Flowers are one of summer's quintessential landscape features and this weekend workshop is the perfect way to learn the techniques for painting the flowers (wild or not) of summer, or any season.
In this workshop we'll take an up-close view, creating a wonderfully layered landscape painting with wildflowers as the star of the scene. The foundation of the piece will be a wet underpainting. Then we'll then use a variety of mark making techniques to create layers and textures of grasses, foliage, and flower shapes, resulting in flowers that naturally blend into their surroundings instead of sticking out.
Participants will learn to achieve light and shadow effects using a surprising variety of colors. We'll also explore controlling depth and focus in a painting with different types of edges.
Whether you're just starting with pastel or would like to gain more knowledge about this particular subject, join Meg for tw0 days of floral fun.
Students will use an instructor-supplied photo. The workshop includes demonstrations, lots of feedback during class, and a detailed critique of your painting by email after class. All experience levels welcome.
Saturday and Sunday, June 12-13.
Limited to 6 participants to ensure individual attention for everyone.
"Meg is an excellent teacher. I like the way workshops are done, including the email feedback given afterwards, it's very helpful. I look forward to taking online classes again in the future."
"I enjoyed the workshop very much and hope to take more online workshops with Meg. I learned a lot and the feedback is wonderful!"
"Taking a class from Meg is sitting at the feet of a master, one who shares all her secrets and techniques without covering over your own personal style. There's a wide gap between doing and teaching, Meg closes that with patience, enthusiasm, and specific, very helpful critiques. I'd recommend her well-planned and creative lessons to anyone wanting to learn and improve their artistic abilities."
"I took my first pastel class with Meg and totally enjoyed myself. The new techniques were fun and Meg was both encouraging and also offered gentle criticisms, which are so necessary in order to grow. I have decided to continue with pastel and hope to take more workshops with Meg soon. Thank You Meg!"
"This workshop was fantastic!"
