The group chose to learn to paint pink 'hydrangeas when it was my turn to host. Let's join Bentley, My Studio Assistant, in the garden to gather some pink Hydrangeas to paint.
Now let's join Bentley in the studio to show you how it was set up for the class.
I have a very large garage with a window and lots of storage space - it also has a very high ceiling and lot of great light and finished dry wall on the walls. I faux painted the floor and it makes a fabulous art studio as I can open the doors for more light if necessary.
I use the old vintage ladder to display flowers and objects that I am painting. The umbrella is used at art shows and I love leaving it up in my studio - it creates the feel of a flower market.
I was too busy to take photos of the completed paintings - everyone did a fabulous job painting. I was so proud of the outcome - especially as this was the first time for me to teach painting techniques to adults. Thank you to Jacki Long for taking some photos of the 'works in progress" that I am sharing below:
This is my completed painting - I only wish I had photos of the students completed works as they were wonderful. I had so much fun teaching the class that I am seriously considering teaching more classes at my studio!!! Stay tuned.
Thank you for stopping by, I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, comments, e-mails, and those of you who follow my blog. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something or if you might be interested in taking an art class on painting techniques from me if I decide to teach more classes.
