What is the 'Poppies in a Jar'

Painting Class?


"Poppies in a Jar" is a  pre-recorded painting class is where I share my process for painting - from start to finish -  painting these beautiful poppies with fantastic light shining from the right side.

Before we begin painting we will discuss the challenges and things to be aware of like

> how to paint all the lines of the stems as a shape
> working dark to light
> exaggerating the blossoms in the light by adding white/yellow
> how to vary the chroma in the reds in the shadow vs the reds in the light.

It is a great study in light and color with very clear shadow shapes and light shapes.

I invite you to join me and gain critical skills to help you uplevel your paintings with a clear plan of action.


 Included in this class you will get: 

* A color reference photo

* A black and white reference photo

* a supply list of everything I am using

* A pre-recorded painting demonstration with super simple, step-by-step guidance based on my painting process which is the same in acrylic and oil paint.


PLUS you'll also get access to an analysis of the photo reference video where we talk about things like: 

* What part is inspiring me the most about the reference?

* What challenges might I face painting it?

* What’s most exciting about this subject?

* How do the elements come into play?

* What’s the black and white version telling me?

Hi I’m Kathleen.

I was a hobby artist for 25 years before I became a professional artist. In the last 10 years I became an elementary school art teacher, started showing my work at art shows, began teaching workshops nationally, opened my own studio/gallery on Santa Rosa Beach Florida, started licensing my artwork ... and have won some very cool awards!

Drawing on my own experience as a hobby artist for many years and a wealth of personal experience allows me to help artists who want to take their skills to the next level. My passion for guiding students towards discovering their own distinct painting style is matched only by my unwavering commitment to igniting the creative spark that fuels their love for art.

I hope you enjoy your painting time.
