Painting Series: GARDEN VIEW
About this painting series
Gardens have always been a universal source of inspiration for artists. At the turn of the 20th century, a large number of painters were actively engaged in gardening, reconciling the ancient horticultural practice with their personal creative process. So much so that their gardens became the settings and subjects that allowed them to explore new formal and thematic topics on their work.
During our unprecedented and lengthy quarantine, we’ve been having more time to care for our immediate surrounding spaces. Whether having access to a yard, a balcony, or a single potted plant in our confined space, most of us are turning to the rooted living beings around us as a source of comfort and pleasure, escape and enjoyment. It’s time to honor them with a painting.
We’re going to paint our immediate “garden” setting from life. Be open to define the word and concept as freely as you’d like, from a view to a single potted plant.
● Painting premise: garden view painted from life.
● Props: a view of your own “garden”. If painting outdoors, find a spot with enough wifi connection.
● Painting surface: any size, any kind.
● Painting webinar medium: oil over cotton paper.
