I will compose a dynamic still-life setup filled with beautiful flowers, local fruits, and captivating artistic elements. But let's not settle for the status quo. I will guide you through the process of breathing vitality into this composition using bold and vibrant colours, daring and eye-catching patterns, intriguing and alluring shapes, and confident and expressive brushstrokes. Brace yourself for an extraordinary experience, as this will be far from your typical still-life endeavour.
During the session, I'll be teaching you a plethora of exciting techniques, including printing, resist methods, and even masking tape magic. Get ready to unleash your creativity like never before!
After the demo, it's your turn to shine. You'll have the opportunity to set up your own still life, with guidance on composition and more. But hey, if still life isn't your cup of tea (even after my exciting twist!), feel free to choose anything else to paint. I'll be there to support you every step of the way. Let's make art that bursts with energy and passion!
