Plants create connections to time and place. We can recall the clover grass covered hills that as children we rolled down and encountered the sting of bumble bees, the live oaks that gave us shade and branches for climbing, and the nopal cactus that taught us the to beware of their painful prick. In this workshop students will paint from a selection of plants and flowers that tell a story about location, season, atmosphere. This class will encourage the exploration of personal expression as students connect to the still life and learn to focus on what story they want to reveal, be it the way light cascades across the leaves, the interaction of color, the movement of the lines in the plant, or the details in the surroundings that add context and emotional weight.
After a short introduction to the history and methods of still life painting and painters, the instructor will demonstrate different painting techniques and possibilities for working with Holbein Acryla gouache paint. This paint is non-toxic and water soluble and has the opacity of acrylic paint yet the matte finish of watercolor. Acryla gouache is forgiving, easy to change, and quick drying for decisive or methodical painting.
