Dancing Daffodils

Water Color Workshop with Alex Carr


​Students will sketch compositions out in class, paying particular attention to the botanical structure of the daffodil from different points of view. There will be reference photos available to inspire a variety of background possibilities.


Each person can choose how many flowers to draw, how to arrange their composition and what type of background to create. The class will talk about various possibilities and look at lots of examples and different artistic interpretations. The emphasis will be on working from live flowers and creating something both beautiful and uniquely personal.


Students will learn to work with transparent yellow - a challenging color because of the limited value range of this lightest of pigments. Shadow colors and reflected light and color are particularly nuanced with transparent yellow, and not always easy to portray realistically. Students look closely at these nuanced colors, mixing subtle shades from a limited palette. This will help simplify the process of mixing muted tones, making it easier to understand and successfully replicate on your own when painting at home.


The workshop's goal is to encourage originality, creativity, exploration, experimentation, fun and learning.
