Friday Acrylic Class FUN WITH FLOWERS


Vern is a fellow artist and teacher at the Upstairs Gallery. He painted a lovely floral of a purple bouquet of flowers. My students have admired the painting for weeks. We used it as our "Do-From" (image we paint from) last Friday in acrylic class. All our paintings are "from the style of Vern Johnson" but they all turned out different as you will see in the photos below of each individuals interpretation of the same subject.

Cathy used a rich palette of blues and purples to paint the bouquet. She has a soft misty touch on the edges of the flowers.

Claire chose a blue palette to render her basket full of flowers.

Kathy painted a lovely basket with purple and blue flowers.

Joan painted a basket full of pink and red roses with small white flowers scattered in.

Marilyn always has a very colorful palette full of fun and motion.

Sally also painted a very colorful spring bouquet. There is a lovely yellow glow in the background.

Yawapa painted on a 16 x 20 canvas. Her pretty floral is in a woven basket.

Please visit these other websites to see more of Margie's paintings.

Come back and visit again soon, thanks for stopping by. Comments are always welcome.

Margie, I'm so sorry to have missed your class at TUG on Friday as I was "under the weather" but please keep me informed of the next one -- of course knowing the subject ahead of time is much appreciated. BT
