Two-Day Workshop with Pam Newell, OPA, AIS, NOAPS

One day indoors, one-day plein air (weather permitting) 

The Brown County Art Guild and a Nashville Country Garden. The workshop will focus on creating floral paintings that mirror the beauty of the garden.

Please Register early to allow for ordering flowers and lunch!

Day 1: At the Guild, we begin by creating master copies of historic Guild Artists, renowned for their paintings of flowers (Cariani, Goth, and Graf’s). There will be a demonstration of how to depict the essence of flowers and how to set up your subject for success. 

Day 2: We will take what was learned and paint outdoors, in a beautiful Nashville garden where spring flowers will be in bloom. Outdoor floral still life and garden scenes will be the subjects.

We will discuss floral painting art as inspired by the Masters; values and chroma, hard and soft edges, transparent vs. opaque color, focal point, brushwork, palette knife and more. There will be lots of individual attention in a relaxed stress-free environment. 

Lunches will be from The Hob Nob and some flowers are included! Bring a favorite vase, container or pitcher, and your favorite fresh flowers and foliage (cut or in pots) to enhance the offerings. You will be inspired as you paint, surrounded by an exhibit of Guild historic paintings and beautiful spring gardens.

This workshop is open to all skill levels and styles; some drawing or painting experience is recommended. The main emphasis is on oil painting; however, all media are welcome. Students provide all workshop materials.

A plein air easel is mandatory!
