Online Registration for "Considering Flowers" with Dawn Stafford begins May 7th 2018. http://www.ox-bow.org/art-on-the-meadow-workshops/ To draw or paint a flower is to participate intimately in its complexity. Each one is a very small sculpture with delicate geometry and hidden spaces. When successful, the painting itself will transcend the flower and hum with its own logic and illusionary journey. That is the quest. Referencing the history, symbolism, and techniques of this classical oil painting genre we will practice building composition, value structure, and color through drawing and painting techniques. All skill levels welcome. A pre-selected palette of pure-pigment oil paints is included in the price of the class. An additional short list of supplies will be provided.
