SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – Robert J. O’Brien is offering a workshop in “Painting Spectacular Flowers in Watercolor” at Gallery at the VAULT, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 6. This is an opportunity to learn from a first-rate artist and instructor.

Students will learn basic floral painting techniques, with an emphasis on values and composition. Layering and blending color into soft edges will also be taught. The course will focus on painting from close-up photo references of flowers in an artistic setting. A critique and class discussion will be held at the end of the session.

If there are more than six students, the workshop will be held at the Art Gym in Springfield; therefore, registration and payment are required one week prior to the workshop. Bring your own photos or sketches for reference. A materials list will be provided at registration. All levels welcome.
