Adding Gold to Floral Paintings – Watercolor, Collage & Metallic
The focus of this workshop is painting watercolor florals that glow, while abstracting the background and adding gold highlights for zing. Karen will demonstrate sunflowers, but students may choose whatever subject they wish. Abstract backgrounds add excitement and interest. Students will learn glazing, adding collage for texture, negative painting, and adding gold highlights to zip up their paintings. Karen believes that painting should be fun and gives lots of individual help to her students, while also teaching design tips for outstanding paintings.
