Shapes, Senses, & Sunflowers
Draw & Paint a Sunflower!
Express your connections to nature's beauty using shape, form, and color!
Sometimes when we look at something beautiful in nature, it looks so complex we think how could we ever capture that beauty in our art journals and sketchbooks? The trick is breaking the object down into it's basic shapes.
In this free class, originally part of Hali Karla's Spectrum 2016 course, I guide you through breaking natural items into shapes, and then applying that technique to drawing and painting a cheerful sunflower!
With the techniques you learn in this class, you'll start seeing and expressing the natural world you've always wanted to draw in the shapes you know and forms you love!
This class includes:
3 drawing and painting tutorial videos
1 sensory shape meditation audio
Written instructions, sample images, and supplies for each step of the project
Access to the Wings, Worms, and Wonder online creative community
I look forward to seeing the shapes and sunflowers you create in this class!
