Beverly will be focusing on “Sight Size” painting from a combination floral/still life setup. The workshop will be featuring how to begin and finish on multiple painting surfaces from paper to a rough sanded surface and with or without various underpainting techniques; how to build up multiple layers of pastel without blending even on an unsanded surface.

Flowers and More!

Beverly prefers painting from life whether still life, figure or landscape. It can be detailed or impressionistic. Painting from life gives you a distinct edge for when you proceed on to paint from a photo in your studio. Beverly is an intuitive painter as compared with a technical painter. Beverly suggests that if you have any related questions to please write them down and bring them with you and we will “tackle” them together. She would like you to know that the reason for taking a workshop is not to create a masterpiece but to explore, experiment and see how someone else tackles a challenge.
