Sunflowers

Not too long ago I took a workshop with Janet Rogers. She has a wonderfully light touch and paints by intuition.  I was soooo pulled into her demonstrations.  Yes, I can do this.... Hmm... once I shed my heavy handedness!

I was thrilled with the flowers, but knew they needed a background.  I waited until the next day to do this. The error I made was not incorporating a background into the flowers when painting them.  Janet's flowers flowed in and out of her background so beautifully.  Mine are.... Well, that's what workshops are for.  Now to practice :)

If you ever have a chance to study with Janet, leap at the chance!

  1. Lovely sunflowers. Took a workshop with Janet last summer in Vt loved it so much I asked her to come to Nh. So lucky me, another 4 days with Janet in June. Just missed your workshop in March, we left Hilton Head to go to Charleston 2 days before. Maybe next year.
