Garden Geraniums and Hydrangeas

Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

This morning in addition to donuts, I brought a pot of fresh geraniums from my back yard garden to the final day of my 3-day workshop at the Jaycee Parks Center for the Arts in Irving, Texas. I decided to give those yummy kiwi another shot, they were so fun to paint on Friday! I had a very talented group of students and their geranium paintings were just amazing - fresh bright color and everyone went home with smiles. For those who couldn't join us this weekend, I brought the garden to you! Here is Garden Geraniums step by step. Enjoy!

Step 1 - tiptoe through the underpainting...

 Step two - a nice smudgey image....

Step 4 - the yummy opaques!

 Sarah's making those reds sing!

 Yvonne created the perfect 
 golden terra cotta pot!

Connie has a true gift for color!

Days 1 and 2 were busy! Here are two of my demos...
Larkspur, white roses, sunflowers and daisies.
