Giant Closeup Flower - Salmon Hibiscus
2 SESSIONS / 3 HOURS EACHWEDNESDAY Workshop
Marianne will demonstrate her method for painting giant closeup florals in acrylics, explaining the techniques and giving a wealth of information in each class. She will cover composition, choosing the colour palette, painting an abstracted background, and moving on to a realistic closeup double hibiscus flower. This will involve blending on the petals, hard and soft edges, overall harmony and much more.
Marianne will answer any questions as she paints the demo and students paint along. Students may ask questions about their painting in progress at the end of the first class, and individual critiques will be given at the end of the second class.
We will paint the flower over two sessions.
