In this class we will be giving Van Gogh a run for his money! Focusing on a single Sunflower of your choice for the entire day, we will paint each and everu disk floret and petal in great detail!
In this series of live online lessons, we will be delving into the mystery of painting flowers. Each separate lesson will be dedicated to the study, lay in and finish of a single flower. Students will watch a fully narrated, live oil painting demonstration from Teresa, while also being able to ask questions. Reference photos will be provided, though it’s also recommended to get your own real flowers to paint from life from. You will receive personalized critiques on your classwork too as part of this class.
