How To Paint Flowers Outside
DVD LENGTH: Over 3 Hours
Capture the Beauty of Flowers, Foliage and Structural Elements While Painting in the Great Outdoor
Painting outdoors is a great way to directly capture the beauty of nature —the colors and shapes found in flowers, leaves, and grasses can ignite a painter’s passion like no other subject.
The challenge of selecting and preparing the scene, the paints, and the brushes is enough to get your creative juices flowing. There is nothing quite like painting outside, where the natural light enhances the beauty of a garden’s treasures.
The past few years have brought new life and energy to the movement of painting en plein air - a chance to travel near or far, alone or with friends, to paint the beautiful scenery found at each destination. There is no better way to capture the memories of nature's pristine beauty than to document it on canvas so you can enjoy it for years to come.
Join Kathy as she expertly guides you through each step of creating a nature-inspired masterpiece:
Selecting and setting up the scene you’ll be painting. Kathy shows you how to enhance the natural beauty with elements that you add yourself, creating a custom garden to paint.
Preparing your canvas, beginning with a light wash so you can use that background color in portions of your piece. Kathy even explains how she makes her own canvases so you can do it, too.
She shares the exact brands and colors she chose for the painting she completes during the video — you’ll see every step, from start to finish.
Painting outdoors can be tricky, with the need to consider weather and changing light. Kathy helps you tackle these issues so you will get the most joy and the least frustration from these challenges.
Incorporating brick, stone, wood, and other “hard” elements into a nature scene can generate harsh lines. Kathy shows you how to soften these so they don’t distract from the natural beauty.
You’ll see how Kathy corrects errors along the way, resulting in a satisfying finished product.
She reviews the challenges that keep flowers from looking real and helps you avoid them. You’ll be painting petals, leaves, and stems like a pro in no time.
Kathy explains how to evaluate portions of your painting so you can use shape and depth to focus and direct the eye.
You’ll see how to add the finishing touches to your painting so when you stand back and look at it, you’ll have a big smile on your face.
And lots more.
Bringing The Garden Indoors
DVD Length: 7 Hours, 17 Minutes
Now You Can Capture Your Favorite Spring Blossoms to Live in Your Home Forever
There's just something about a beautiful garden that captivates the human eye...
Maybe it’s remembering your mother’s garden or your grandmother’s roses.
If you close your eyes, you can remember the scent of flowers from your childhood.
For many of us, our moms had a lot to do with our passion for flowers.
When springtime hits and the flowers are everywhere, we wish they would last forever.
What if you could capture your favorite flowers, flowering trees, or garden, with the emotion you feel when you see them?
What if those flowers you love so much could hang on your walls forever and remind you of spring on those cold gray gloomy winter days?
Throughout history, artists have certainly taken notice and captured the beauty, radiance, and grace of the garden.
Monet’s Water Lilies and the gardens at Giverny…
…Van Gogh’s Sunflowers…
…Georgia O’Keeffe’s Red Poppy…
But painting flowers is difficult for most people because they’ve never been shown the right ways to depict the glowing light on the petals and leaves, and how to capture the emotion within flowers.
The truth is that anyone can discover how to paint captivating garden scenes.
“Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love.” — Claude Monet
If you love gardens and flowers, you can paint a beautiful garden scene.
Few artists express and instill this love in their paintings better than Kathy Anderson.
“Take me to the tallest mountains, and I’ll appreciate their majesty. Let me paint the smallest flower, and I’ll be truly happy.” — Kathy Anderson
Kathy Anderson is an artist renowned for her garden still life and floral paintings.
As a child in her little yellow gardening shoes, Kathy would plant smiling pink daisies and bouncing purple hydrangeas…
…flirtatious blue peonies and exuberant yellow sunflowers.
Kathy learned the peace, tranquility, and joy that come from spending time in the garden…
…and she learned to translate that feeling onto the canvas when she studied under Richard Schmid (considered one of the greatest living American realist painters).
For 10 years, she focused on improving her craft, learning the “ins and outs” of painting from life...
…and how to capture the movement, energy, and personality of the different plants that make up a great garden scene.
Since then, Kathy has not only become a highly sought-after teacher, she’s also become a critically renowned painter, winning awards such as:
Oil Painters of America National Juried Exhibition — Best Signature Member Award of Excellence
National Arts Club Members Show — President’s Award
Bayonet Farm Annual Plein Air Competition — First Prize
While collecting awards for her paintings, she’s also traveled the United States, painting in some of the most awe-inspiring locations this country has to offer.
And yet, despite painting at the base of giants like the Grand Tetons, Kathy prefers to keep her eyes “closer to the ground.”
What truly makes her feel alive is coming across a water-colored trillium or a nodding violet in the wild.
It’s what she loves to paint, and loves to teach.
As she paints, she narrates her step-by-step process — giving you an insider’s peek into the thoughts and creative decisions behind each and every brushstroke.
Her enthusiasm is infectious, and it’s impossible not to let it influence your own paintings.
Kathy believes that she can teach anyone to paint a beautiful garden scene.
You don’t need to be an expert painter…
…you just need to fall in love with what you’re painting and follow Kathy’s step-by-step process.
If you come alive when you see spring flowers, this video will help you master the art of painting the flowers you love.
Let’s take a closer look at what you’ll learn in this video:
