Sunday June 11, from 11am-4pm, I’ve been invited to paint a public demonstration at the New York Botanical garden.
Everyone is welcome to bring your art supplies to paint along.
In addition to the artists scattered throughout the garden, there will be guided tours featuring the current Chihuly exhibtion, along with demonstrations of flameworking by Urban Glass. (Which is a fascinating sketching subject!).
There will be over 20 established plein air painters, including the event’s headliner James Gurney, plein-air master Garin Baker, Montreal’s own Shari Blaukopf, NYC urban sketcher and reportage artist Veronica Lawlor, and USK past-president Jason Das – along with many more artists I’ve yet to meet.
In preparation for the event, I’ve been warming up with some studies at home. Here’s a series, based around reference photos of roses and common rose diseases.
I know that’s a bit odd, but there you have it.
