Take your pick from the selection of seasonal flowers. We will then look at arranging and lighting the flowers with different coloured backgrounds, creating interesting and unusual compositions and colour relationships. We will create a simple tonal sketch on the canvas, before applying the paint in a dynamic and interesting way: focusing on colour, brushwork and composition.
