C is for Camellia

C is for Camellia
8 x 10 Oil  Painting
 by Pat Fiorello


Had a really fun day today, day one of a 3 day workshop I am teaching  "Painting Flowers Alla Prima in Oils".

Started out with the basics today to have students learn the approach I use for flower paintings.

Here are a few steps along the way from the initial transparent color block in of shapes and background,  to establishing more of the elements/forms and finally adding a few finishing touches at the end trying to retain the freshness, essence and spirit of the flowers and not be too concerned with getting every exact detail.

Broke down the stages and then students followed along. Tomorrow we'll add a little more complexity by doing individual still life set ups of flowers in ceramic containers and practice the process again.
