This Fiber Art is not Latch Hook, but where Latch Hook, Punch Needle and Locker Hooking came from. Hand Hooked Rugs are a form of fiber art that can be traced back the Vikings and even further to the Egyptians. This was an early way of recycling old clothing and other materials to create something very useful. 85% of my work is made from recycled garments.

The Art of Painting Flowers with Pam Newell

The Art of Painting Flowers

Fill your work with light and energy and hone your skills, by painting your favorite flowers. In this intensive workshop learn to block in and capture the gesture and essence of this beautiful, but fleeting subject.  Discover how light creates form and so much more! 

The focus will be on fresh flowers in a still life.  Or you may paint from your best garden photos.  

Bring: your favorite still life objects and a vase, container, pitcher, draping  cloths, fruit, fresh flowers and foliage (cut or in pots)- whatever inspires you to paint!  You will learn how to set up and light your objects to create a mood to make an exceptional painting. We will discuss the principals of fine art as inspired by the Masters; how to begin a painting, focal point, values, transparent vs. opaque color, hard and soft edges, brushwork, palette knife and surface texture.

There will be an instructor demo and lots of individual attention. Lights, stands, backdrop stations and some props and flowers are provided.  Painting from life is ideal, but if you wish to paint from your garden photos, you may.  Photos are best if they are on an Ipad or computer. 

Materials list are found on my website:  This workshop is open to all skill levels and styles; some drawing or painting experience is recommended. The main emphasis is on oil painting; however, all media are welcome. Students provide all workshop materials. PLEASE BRING A PORTABLE OR TABLETOP EASEL.
