About Still Life and Flower Painting Course: Block 2

Monday 30th September & 7th October

Artist Suzanne Kemplay graduated in Painting and Drawing from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee. She works from her studio in Edinburgh, and has exhibited at a number of Scottish Galleries. Suzanne is predominantly known for her still life work and photorealist flower paintings.

This is Block 2 of Suzanne's 28 hour painting course. The course is designed to encourage, and give confidence to, beginners, while also helping those who want to develop their painting skills further. Go here for more information on the full course.

The course is available to book as a complete course (28 hours), as individual 2-week blocks (5 hours), plus as a weekend course (13 hours) to suit different levels, skills and interests. A discount is available when booking all 3 blocks together.

30 September & 7 October: Flower portrait

In this block, Suzanne will share with you the stages of creating your very own stunning flower portrait on canvas. Starting with drawing out the image through the process of underpainting, onto building up your image in layers. There will be a choice of two flower images to work from

Class sizes are kept small so that Suzanne can give you the support you need to get the most from the course.
