Spring Geranium Garden and a Houston Workshop - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina

Spring Geranium Bouquet

Oil on Deep Gallery Wrap Canvas

Spring Geranium Garden was one of my class demonstrations this weekend in my Spring, Texas workshop, in The Woodlands area just north of Houston. We painted yellow tulips, red geraniums and tomorrow, white hydrangeas and purple larkspur, all from fresh flowers. Painting from life is such a great way to pay tribute to Mother Nature, and creating a painting from a fresh flower has an impact that is quite a bit stronger than recreating work from a one dimensional photograph. How to make the transition from photos to life is one of the things I share with my students.Visit my art blog to see photos from class this weekend, and hear about a holiday gift that's coming your way soon!
