"Qiang Huang Workshop #2"

8 x 10
oil on stretched canvas

Qiang paints the most beautiful roses and many in the workshop today requested that his demo include roses. So when it was time for the students to paint, I felt that I should follow his lead and give it a try. My hats off to all you floral painters! This was another great day in the workshop with lots of valuable information given in a power point presentation, followed by Qiang's demo and then the class doing a still life of their choosing from a number of available props.

Thanks to each of you who have shown interest in these workshop posts, hope to have one more post tomorrow after the last day of the class. It's been a blast!


  1. I am so excited for you Ann...this workshop sounds like a wonderful opportunity for growth as an artist and if these paintings are any indication you are well on your way!
    p.s. I think roses are hard too!

  2. Great job using the primary and secondary colors, Ann. I think this is lovely! Roses are the one constant thing I've drawn for years, even when I had periods of not drawing at all, they were my better doodles (oh yes; I am a doodler). This sounds like a wonderful class you have going on!

  3. Looks like a very good class! My roses are still unfinished from Elizabeth Robins class. I never did get the hang of it.
    Very nice.

  4. ohh, no... this is a great rose Ann! It has alot of flow-y-ness - yikes, is that a word? You know what I mean; this rose is graceful, feminine. well done

  5. j'adore cette petite tasse "gobelet" bleue... à bientôt
