About This Class

d39acc47

This class is for beginner level artists who want to learn how to create a modern abstract floral painting.  I will start off by showing you my workspace and supplies. Then we will walk through my process of creating a small abstract floral painting.  I will show you how I layer my paintings and I will talk you through each step of the process along the way.  I'll show you how I mix some of my favorite paint colors and I will give you my best tips for painting flowers. 

Here is a list of the supplies I used for this class:

- Jars or cups of clean water
- Paper towels
- Strathmore Palette Paper (a paper plate will work as a palette, too)
- Small and medium paint brushes.  I used Artist's Loft brand brushes.
