Genesis of the Flower
We will explore the genesis of the Flower - from birth to fading glory! The celebration of the flowers as they transit from the greens of the bud - to the soft colours of a full blown flower and the gentle browns and shapes which result as the plant fades! These stages all have their unique beauty - you can choose to paint a representational Work - or a more abstracted adaptation of the process!

We will explore the genesis of the Flower – from birth to fading glory!

The celebration of the flowers as they transit from the greens of the bud – to the soft colours of a full blown flower and the gentle browns and shapes which result as the plant fades!

These stages all have their unique beauty – you can choose to paint a representational Work – or a more abstracted adaptation of the process!
