St. Albert Painters Guild
Acrylic or Oil: A Floral Portrait
with Oksana Zhelisko
Flowers and women are wonderful and beautiful subjects to paint. There are many great techniques that you can use to capture their beauty. In this one-day class we shall combine the beauty of both subjects into one image, using alla-prima technique (done in one sitting). We shall be working from the same reference image of a beautiful woman, but you will be able to choose your own flower(s)to capture a stunning flower portrait. Think about flower names — Jasmine, Rose, Flora, Daisy, Iris —and take your inspiration from them. The instructor will illustrate the technical and expressive aspects of oil/acrylic portrait painting by doing a demo and showing examples of her own work.
