Spring Sunflowers - Original Oil Painting of Yellow Sunflowers - Kitchen Art

"Spring Sunflowers"
14" x 11" Oil on canvas panel.

Every Monday night I teach a small group of students how to paint in an Impressionist style using oil paint. Last week I brought in a beautiful bunch of flowers that I found at Home Depot (believe it or not they have reasonably priced flowers there). You can see the still life set up below with my painting on the easel.

My students said it was a challenging exercise but one that they enjoyed doing. As a result of their hard work they went home with some beautiful art that they can be proud to call their own. It's truly amazing to watch each of them learn and grow in their skills each week.



Weekly Oil Painting Classes for Beginning - Intermediate Students in Orange County, CA

Every Monday Night 6:00-9:00
3851 S. Bear Street
Santa Ana, California 92704

Cost is $35 per class

Oil painting classes for beginning to intermediate level students. Using a hands on approach I guide each student through the painting process. I talk about color mixing, composition, focal point, color harmony, paint application, brushwork, selecting a subject and so much more. Class size is limited so that I can give each student lots of individual attention. Each week we will work from life or  from a photograph. In class I teach an Impressionist style of painting, working wet into wet paint (if you are looking to learn how to paint photorealistically or to learn the old master's glazing techniques then this is not the class for you). The classroom is located in the Room & Board shopping center around the corner from the Showcase Gallery, enter through the "Studio."
