In this mixed media floral workshop, you'll learn:
Mixed media Techniques for Flowers
Drawing Flowers with Ease (and without overwhelm)

How to Paint Expressive Backgrounds in warm and cool harmonious palettes
How to Collage Expressive Backgrounds
How to put all of these skills together - Drawing, Painting and Collage to create your own modern expressive flower paintings.
Throughout the class, I'll emphasize how to achieve color harmony and pleasing compositions in your flower paintings and beyond.
The course includes over 17 pre-recorded video tutorials that you download to keep, re-watch and learn from at your own pace.
3 Finished Paintings -- you will walk away from this course with 3 finished mixed media floral paintings that you can hang on the wall or give as gifts (or sell!)
- Gorgeous Reference Photos (I will provide beautiful reference photos for each project and video tutorial. You may always use your own photos or live flowers, too)
- Shared Color Palette (So that you can truly follow along with me, all of the paintings will be done with 7 core colors plus white, gray, titan buff and black, For a low-budget alternative, I also show you how to substitute the colors you have at home already to get similar results).
- Community- Building Platform (I use Ruzuku so that we can share our work in our own private classroom)
