Join Mindy for an exploration on different ways that we can paint flowers. Using a variety of brushes, palette knives & painting techniques to capture the beauty of your petals. We'll cover different stages from budding to full bloom. This is a workshop you don't want to miss!
Here is a list of suggestions to have with you for the workshop
A Canvas pad sketchbook or 4 or more workable surfaces: Choose from canvases 8x10's or larger or primed boards. Alternatively, you can prime watercolor paper, (heavy weight 200lb or 400lb*is optimal) and make sure to do 1 coat of white gesso on 1 side before the session begins. *Remember this is in a workshop format so your learning new techniques for your toolbox. This is a good opportunity to reuse old canvases! Prep your used canvas prior to class with 1 or 2 coats of white gesso.

A table top easel or Books to prop up your canvas
Brushes: medium & small flat brush, angled brush, 2 or more round brush with fine tip for details, fan brush. Have a variety of brushes close at hand!

How ONLINE Classes work
To access the Online Platform you'll have to download ZOOM.US app to your phone, iPad, or computer. This is a FREE app and you only need the basic package.
(You'll see it says 40mins max. however that is if you were to host. So you'll still be able to join me for 2hr without an upgrade)
Once you've registered, create an account and I'll send you the link to join.
When you join the class, be sure to turn your microphone + video ON so I can make sure you can see & hear me. Once we get started you can change your video screen to face your canvas. If you prefer to mute your mic after this you can.
Questions? I'd love to hear from you!
