Brushed Blooms

I was delighted to see that @Helendardik was holding a workshop on this side of the Atlantic. So immediately booked on the course in Rotterdam.

Floral art workshop
Helen furnished the beautiful Rotterdam studio with boundless beautiful bouquets. Wonderful teaching with a lovely group of creative people.

I had seen and followed Helen’s work. Always wondering how she achieved the effects with paint, to create her stunning pieces. I was keen to learn from Helen.

Lovely to meet Helen. I felt like I’d stepped into Instagram. I learned so much and had a truly lovely day. .

I continue to explore the techniques, and materials, here are my favourite pieces so far….

Continuing my bird work. 😊

When I accidentally dropped a huge blog of opera pink on my brand new sheet of paper this snail character emerged.

Pinks and blues - begonia, cornflowers and roses.

Love how the pinks pop against the blues.
