Drawing and Painting Flowers

  • Fine Line Creative Art Center 37W570 Bolcum Road St. Charles, IL, 60175 United States (map)

Increase your drawing and painting skills in this class that uses flowers as your subject matter. Learn how to draw and then transfer a flower to canvas and then bring it to life. Karen will share her technique for layering rich backgrounds and painting realistic depictions of flowers. At the end of the class we'll have a show and tell of our garden of paintings!

Supplies: Bring a fairly simple flower in a pot or vase. Sketchbook or drawing paper, pencil, eraser, 2-8" x 10" (or similar size) gessoed boards or canvas (one will be for practice), shallow plastic container with lid-at least 5" x 7" (used for palette for paint), paper towels, water container, a couple of small plastic containers to mix paint in, mister, sponge or rag, brushes-(2", 1", #12 & 4 flats, #0 & 4 rounds or whatever acrylic brushes you have that can do detail), acrylic paint-(some suggestions: titanium white, lemon yellow, cadmium yellow light, aureolin yellow, permanent rose, cadmium red light, quinacridone magenta, burnt sienna, cerulean blue, ultramarine blue, indanthrene blue, hookers green). If you have a favorite palette, you're welcome to bring those colors.
