Coming Up:
Painting Poppies With Marianne Broome

Come and explore a vibrant, realistic flower painting in acrylics. Marianne will demonstrate step
by step from a photograph, explaining a variety of techniques including soft blending on petals,
hard and soft edges, achieving depth, handling the background and overall colour harmony.
Marianne gives lots of individual attention and extra tips to help you with your own painting.
Suitable for all levels.

Note: In order to give us more painting time, PLEASE TONE YOUR CANVAS AND DRAW OUT

To tone the canvas apply a thin coat of Burnt Sienna or Quicaradone Nickel Azo Gold. The
canvas can be spritzed before applying the paint so that it goes on in a very thin coat and is not
too dark.

The flowers should be drawn with the petals going off the edges as in the reference photo seen above. 

Chalk or white charcoal can be used for your drawing. No need to draw in any leaves or
background – flowers only. The photo can be printed in black and white for this purpose. A good
colour version of the reference photo will be provided at that workshop.
