Step by Step Roses and a North Texas Workshop by Flower Artist Nancy Medina

Red and White Roses in Glass

Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

It's been a busy few weeks, with an art show reception at Keller Town Hall, an art demo for the Visual Art League of Lewisville, Texas, a three day workshop at the Jaycee Parks Center for the Arts, and a trip to Scottsdale following close on the heels of all that frenzy. If I didn't absolutely love what I am doing, I would have to fire my scheduler for sure! Here is another of my demo paintings from my 3-day workshop last weekend, red and white roses in glass on a nice square format.

My next workshop is in Memphis, Tennessee, in September, but there are only two seats left, and November in North Texas is almost full, but there are plenty of seats open in the Texas Hill Country workshop in Fredericksburg, Texas. Put a little joy in your brush and let's make flowers bloom together in 2012! Read more about my workshops here...

Step 1 - a bright underpainting is key!

Step 2 - Jumping right into the reds...

Step 3 - Time to add more opaques!

Grinning is encouraged in my workshops!

Jan and Jill, these Louisiana ladies got talent!

Pat and Lois and their blossoming sunflowers!

What a happy, happy time!

Gorgeous roses, Nancy! But that is no surprise to me, for sure. I wish I could do your Memphis workshop. I think I could do the drive in a day, but not positive. Ah well...
