Instructor:  Bev Robertson

The Coast Collective is happy to welcome back Bev Robertson, a  wonderful floral artist who will share her experience, her love of big juicy colour,  and great techniques to ensure you come home with a luscious masterpiece!

Class Objective:

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, paint 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. Oils and acrylics mediums.

Class outline:

I will begin with a talk about my process of choosing and cropping your reference photo.

Graphing for larger for drawing onto the canvas.

First day blocking in not full detail. Getting the basics of the values and shapes. I will demo throughout the class but also have enough time for individual instructions.

Second day refining and adding some detail. Background fill in.

For your image references,  print a photo of your choice, using your own photos or if you don’t have one I will offer a couple choices for the class to use.
