Please register by October 19, 2018


Instructor: Bev Robertson AFCA

Enjoy a bright adventure in water mixable oils.  We will paint a “larger than life” painting of a single or 2-3 cluster of blooms.  In this class I will cover drawing using the graphing method, paiint application techniques, mixing colour and checking colour, value, and tones.  I will teach how to paint backgrounds with interest, keeping it soft and un-focused.

Class outline

  • I will begin with a talk about my process of choosing and cropping your reference photo
  • Graphing for “larger for life drawing on the canvas
  • First day, blocking in not full detail.
  • I will demo throughout the class but also have enough time for individual instructions
  • Getting the basics of the values and shapes.
  • Second day refining and adding some detail
  • Background fill in


Print a photo of choice, using your own photos or if you don’t have one I will offer a couple of choices for the class to use.
Print 1 or 2, 8X10 photos to fit to a 16 x 20 canvas or 8×8 photos to fit 24×24 canvas. Please stick with these sizes as it will save time and frustration in class.
If you would like me to crop or edit your photo prior to class please email a copy and I can print it for you for a fee of $1.  In your email, please let me know the size of canvas you are planning to use.
