Botanical Offerings: A Flower Painting Live Workshop with Wendy Brightbill


I have always been drawn to flowers in my work. To me, flowers represent the healing power of beauty. They are one of my favorite subject matters to paint, whether it’s a still life painting or an abstract floral. There is so much inspiration for painting flowers, I don’t think I could ever get bored of them. In this workshop, we will practice botanical sketching. I will share some of my favorite ways to sketch and play with line work. Don’t worry, flowers are super forgiving to sketch. We will have fun building playful, mixed media, abstract florals! I love layering lines, shapes and color to create one of kind pieces. I will also share some of my favorite techniques for using collage to create graphic florals.

During our two day workshop, we will also be altering a vintage book. I love painting on the covers of old books because they make the perfect backdrop for painted flowers. We will then be using the inside of the book as an art journal! I will share some of my favorite ways to paint art journal pages, including abstract play.

To finish up our time together, we will be painting a beautiful still life painting on canvas to hang on your wall! I will share some of my tips for creating beautiful still life paintings.

I seriously can’t wait to be back in Jeanne Oliver’s gorgeous studio! I hope that you will join me.
