with follow up with Evelyn as wished

Evelyn’s recent large scale flower paintings have been recognized in international exhibitions, becoming a favorite subject for her during the past year, as her gardens are a source of inspiration.

In this workshop, the focus will be on proficiency in mixing rich, dark, juicy, transparent colors and painting layers of pigment to create depth. The soft, out of focus background is a practice of wet in wet application of pigments.

The structure of the stamen in hollyhocks is a study in itself, and adds a dramatic accent.

I’m so pleased to include a review from an artist who has taken my workshops. Thank you, Linda!

Thank you for a wonderful experience. It was very satisfying, soothing, & fun. I learned a great deal. My pre-class anxiousness was immediately relieved, gone forever! Linda Lupton

I hope to see you in the workshop!
