Service Description

NIGHT LOTUS Summer early evenings are a fortuitous time to paint the unbelievably beautiful night lotus - in oils. The night drapes a gorgeous pale blue colour over its pristine white petals, as if it has been painted by the nighttime itself. A chance to paint quiet lights and gentle shades in oils as well as begin our early studies in luminescence, and a relatively simple first flower. If you have access to real lotuses in a pond near you - then lucky you! I wish I had nearby lotuses. Along with the tulip, they are becoming one of my favourite flowers. A meditative end to summer. I have chosen every singular object or picture carefully as each will help transmit a certain aspect of the principles of oil painting and picture making. These images are starting points only; we will entirely create our own artworks.
