Garden roses are some of the most beautiful forms in the botanical world.  They have been cultivated for centuries and bear little resemblance to the stiff generic varieties that are commonly available.  In this intensive workshop painters will have an opportunity to study their complex geometry and exquisite color subtlety. The course will Include an indirect method of painting and the introduction of a specific limited palette.  A brief slide lecture on the history of the genre will inspire us as we explore this timeless motif.
