(Detail from a J.L. Provost watercolor)Watercolor palettes: A study with bearded iris
Sunday May 20th, 2012
In this introductory level class we'll celebrate the bearded iris, a flower which artists have reveared throughout history. (How lovely to think of the many fragile beauties which have been immortalized in the works of JL Prevost, Van Gogh and Georgia O'Keeffe.) We'll round up several species of this exotic bloom and learn the basics of color and texture layering along with other seasonal May flowers such as peonies, garden roses, lily of the valley, yarrow and perhaps a bit of the spring's last lilac. Students will each create a lush, gestural centerpiece in a soft watercolor inspired palette.
This class will take place at the Saipua Studio: 147 Van Dyke Street in the Red Hook Section of Brooklyn.
