How do you handle adding a landscape background to a painting, bringing the outdoors inside? Join us in delving into approaches of painting flowers in a garden setting with solutions in handling light outdoors in various media. Backgrounds as well as form, silhouette, lighting, texture and composition will be addressed. A variety of opportunities may be available for the artist to capture seasonal flowers at Edgewood Farm and also painting them en plein air at a local flower market garden.
