Sans Souci Garden Path and How to Put a Little Romance in Your Brush by Nancy Medina


 Detail: Sans Souci Garden Path
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Sans Souci Garden Path is the newest tribute to romance in Flower Mound Art Studio. I created this garden scene by blending many of my Dallas Arboretum photographs with art model photos taken in the past, cutting, pasting and overlapping until I found a composition that worked. With a strong vertical element (the little lady) I needed an equally strong, but less important horizontal element to help push her forward, and create a nice bit of tension for the eye. The fuschia hedgerow filled the bill!

You are invited to join me February 14-16 for three days of painting loose, bright, fun flowers and dresses in North Texas in my workshop designed specially for the traveling artist. With free transportation to and from the airport and to class each day, located just a few miles from the airport, this is an easy quick trip for those who want to dip their toes in a fun workshop with lots of cool giveaways. The workshop is almost full so don't delay! Put a little romance in your brush and join me for some Valentine's fun!
