In this relaxing workshop, Iris will teach you how to achieve the right colour temperature, depth and tonal values to paint in realism the images of red roses, a gold ornament, gold fabric, and a white ceramic pot. You will learn how to develop shadows and how it is used to bring out the light in a painting. Combining hard and soft edges, detailed and painterly strokes you will create a painting that is realistic but still with a painterly style.
