If you're looking for a fun way to spend a Saturday, and come away with an intuative mixed media painting, this "one shot" workshop with Sandrine is for you!


Forgo your reference photos and discover a more organic and joyful way of painting!


Workshop Overview


You'll start your time with Sandrine by learning to properly mount yupo paper to board, then using a three-stage approach, you'll discover how to pull flowers from your mind, and watch them bloom on paper.


You'll drop in color (ink, watercolor or fluid acrylics) to create abstract backgrounds full of beautiful textures and blooms.


Just like searching for shapes in the clouds, you'll then search for shapes in your background suggestive of blossoms and leaves. Painting negatively around them, you'll watch the flowers emerge!


Then you'll add patterns in pen to create a lovely, faux collage effect - evocative of Sandrine's signature style.


Never again will you be stuck for ideas or dependent on a photo. Every flower you paint will be unique, personal, and fresh from your imagination!


Workshop Objectives

Students will work on two paintings, one on canvas and one on yupo paper mounted on board.


Depending on how fast you like to work, you will either leave the class with two finished paintings or two works that are well on their way to being finished, and the knowledge you need to finish them at home. 


For this class, you will need the following supplies:
