Come and paint Gum Blossoms with me this time next week! It's a special encore session for this very special artwork.
This is definitely one of my favourite paintings.
It's a layered painting of 'gum blossoms' (or "Corymbia" ficifolia if you're a little bit fancy).
I sketched and sketched until I came up with a version of gum blossoms that I would be happy to hang on my own wall, and that I knew I could teach. It really came together after I painted gums for my Instagram Spring Series that ran throughout last September.
We'll be starting with a black canvas and monoprinting our own beautiful backgrounds before layering on branches, leaves and flowers.
You'll stand back and go "WOW" when you've finished this one, and then you'll get to take it home - strung, varnished and ready to hang.
