BLOOMS 4 DAY BRISBANE
PAINT A LARGE PEONY BLOOM PAINTING
NOV 30, Dec 1,2,3, 2018 at Metro Arts



Paint a large beautiful peony on canvas to enjoy over the summer break.

Peonies have always been the jewels in the range of Blooms I have painted and over the years I have created many commissions for clients and painted them for myself as well. Now I am going to share about these exquisite creations and how to paint them.

We have four delicious days to immerse ourselves into this feminine world pf petals and gorgeous colour.

It’s peony season, and this special workshop celebrates these stunning exotic timeless flowers, as I show 
  • how to colour mix the subtle colour palettes required, 
  • the tips and distinctive techniques that make for beautiful peony blooms, quite different to other blooms and to capture their wonderful features. 
  • How to blend and how to control your paint
  • How to create depth and volume
  • Paint a 1m square canvas in acrylics and finish with a gloss varnish

Benefit as I share my secrets of how to paint these elegant beauties so you can create your own peony masterpiece. 

NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE NECESSARY.

I will be providing peony reference from Monet’s garden, my favourite Parisian florist and peonies reference sourced from the Australia’s top growers for students to select from. We will be creating the colour palettes you will need to paint these beauties in this special class.

Choose from simple to the more complex challenge depending on your experience level. I will provide a selection of White peonies, pale pink peonies, deep pink peonies and striped peonies with a range of composition choices.

NO DRAWING SKILLS REQUIRED

From beginners to previous bloomers rebooting their techniques.
$2250 pp including art supplies, morning and afternoon tea

Free up your painting with my New Blooms FREESTYLE Workshops

Learn how to paint Blooms Freestyle with loads of texture and playfulness!

NEW BLOOMS FREESTYLE 3 DAY PAINTING WORKSHOP


BAROSSA MELBOURNE SYDNEY BRISBANE




-

BAROSSA  3 Day Blooms DECEMBER 8, 9 & 10, 2017 


 SYDNEY @WILLOUGHBY  3 Day Blooms JAN 4-6, 2018 

 MELBOURNE @Glen Iris  3 Day Blooms JAN 18-20, 2018 

BRIS @METRO ARTS  3 Day Blooms JULY 28,-30, 2018 




Every now and again, it’s time to bust out and paint freestyle letting the creative energies have a safe porthole to get out and show what they can do!



When in that exciting place to create it's not about everything being perfect, because other elements such as colour, texture and movement take over. The result is beautiful and very free in style in the art itself. 

This could get messy in the best possible way!


Transform how you use acrylic paint!
I was feeling like a change recently and thought to myself I will bring this workshop to  my students who love the idea of being less tightly detailed. It provides an alternative way to paint with the acrylics, and utilises some of the approaches from my Freedom to Paint Oils Workshop.


You can use any of the techniques I will teach you in your other works of art. Get so much more out of your acrylics when you know what else they can do.

No previous experience is necessary for this workshop. I will show you the steps, and in fact we will spend day 1 of 3 days on sample boards exploring how to create delicious texture, combinations and I will show you how to get handle the palette knife as well plus I will share colour recipe combinations you will love.

I'll help you work out your colour combinations before you go to the canvas


Painting in this way brings me back to the very first paintings I ever created when I had no skills but that creative energy was desperate for an outlet. 

There is something very attractive about the outcome of painting in a direct way. They have a unique energy of their own that energises others! 

Those paintings I made were soon claimed by others who loved them as passionately to hang in their homes as I had enjoyed making them!



This workshop is perfect for you if;
ü You love splashes of colour
ü Luscious is your middle name
ü You love spontaneity
ü You love the delight of exploring your creativity not having set outcomes
ü You love to master stunning colour combinations
ü You enjoy engaging with texture
ü You are looking to be playful with your creativity
ü You want to know how to get more out of your acrylics
ü You are curious to know what you can do with the palette knife
ü You are keen for a wider range of expressive tools in your paintings to deliver a wider range of results



When I paint like this the painting emerges quickly before my eyes and delights my senses. It's how I started painting and every now again I like to go back to that place and let rip! 



And that's exactly what my Melbourne 3 day workshop delivered in August -creating a beautiful textured floral painting full of expression, delicious layers and loads of creative energy unleashed! And getting the acrylics to look as luscious as the oils!

Join me for three days as I show you how to build layers and textures, including impasto, gold leaf, how to work Wet on wet and dry on dry , glazing , building up your surface from chiaroscuro to rich paint combinations , creating the accidental marks, and sharing colour recipes you can practice before taking them to the canvas.

We combine drawing and painting on the canvas, along with impasto and a range of textured paint applications, stunning colour combos and colour recipes. 

I will teach you new techniques to choose to apply to your painting then we will be painting a 1 metre square stunning canvas and having a lot of fun doing it. Let your creativity out to play! 
This workshop is a feast for your senses!

You will also create another smaller series of paintings which are the practice run for the techniques.

I love returning to this painting style featuring an explosion of colour and energy.  It's fun and freeing yet the success of these works will be underpinned by a knowledge of what works together and trying it before you hit the canvas. 

Absolutely no previous experience necessary
This is a one off so first in best dressed!

Included ;
ü Art supplies for large canvas
ü Sample boards 
ü Handheld tuition and loads of demos of how to apply the acrylics and other materials in new textural ways to make them look like oils
ü Catered lunch provided so you can focus on your art
ü Paint Brush Licence
ü Palette knife licence session 
ü Getting your acrylic paint to look like oils session 
ü Take home pack of Reference to paint more paintings
ü Daily workshop hours of 9-5.30pm

ü Morning and afternoon tea

Blooms Acrylic and Oils Painting Workshops Dates 2017/2018

PAINTING WORKSHOPS, TOUR & EVENTS DATES
WITH JACQUELINE COATES 
2017 & early 2018 




Demos are a regular feature of all of my painting workshops, with loads of
instruction and tips to get you there quickly and confidently!

PLUS  7 TOP TIPS TO INCREASE YOUR ART PRODUCTIVITY AND GET GOING;


1. Diarise the time you will paint ( or book into a workshop! 

See below! Loads to choose from)


Details of paintings from my new Blooms Freestyle workshop
coming to Barossa Valley, Sydney and Melbourne by popular demand!
Learn to free up your painting style and learn new and fun
techniques in combination with acrylic paints


2. Make your creative nook or studio room at home inviting to be in. Get rid of clutter. Make it inspiring!


Okay, I don't have quite this many blooms in mys studio every day but during rose season, YES!!!!!!!!
It  then becomes a floral orgy! Also I tend to spoil my masterclass and MMFA Program students when they visit. I always have some flowers about when my Blooms workshops are on.

3. Natural light is ideal to paint with as you can register colour accurately with your eye without the influence of a cold or warm light bulb. If you cant have natural light go to Amazon and get some natural daylight lamps posted to you. I like the ones on umbrella stands best plus you get to feel like a rockstar when painting as it looks like you are ready for a photo shoot! Buy two as they aren't expensive and then you can out them from two sides. just like daylight!


Natural daylight is best to paint with. If you don't have it, create it!

4. When you are ready to create, turn the phone to airport mode and put a sign on the gate to ward off unexpected visitors saying BUSY PAINTING! CALL BACK LATER! 

A little blackboard is ideal for that as then its easy to change the message ..


5. Train loved ones that this is YOUR time!!!!! Get someone else in the family to make your dinner on the day you are painting. OR agree that Tuesday night or whichever night it will be is takeaway and delivery night!


6. Make sure you have something you want to paint to go to.


 

If you want it all done for you plus instruction a great home assist to learn painting is www.howtopaintblooms.com which provides your painting reference for you with the results guaranteed because the instructions are detailed for you, helpful whilst you are training your eye to recognise what will make a successful painting. That course is $69 a month for weekly eclasses.

You can also go out with your smart phone or tablet camera and take pictures of what you love be it landscape or still life or flowers or a pet or loved ones. You can learn to paint all of these subject matters with the Blooms Painting Method featured below in my painting workshops.



Student results even from newbie painters exceed expectations at Blooms Painting Workshops
because my Jacqueline Coates Blooms Painting Method is generous in useful information
that helps you manage your paint and get great results. You will be in charge of your painting!

Blooms 1 of the Blooms 1 and 2 Painting Workshop where you create two paintings in 4 days.
The midsize canvas size is 30 x 40 inches

7. Make a start no matter what. Bust through your inertia. Once you have a brush in hand everything will change. You will be  a conduit for that fabulous creative energy and will be off and running!
