SOLD - "Deepdene Escape" - Olmsted Plein Air Painting Invitational

I’m so pleased that this landscape I painted for the 2021 Olmsted Plein Air Invitational is now on its way to the home of a new collector.

I love the Deepdene in Olmsted Linear Park in Atlanta, Georgia, because it can make you forget that you are actually in the middle of a busy metropolis. - Patrick Saunders

Patrick Saunders Fine Arts Floral Workshop Artists - Booth Western Art Museum

I want to thank this very talented group of artists for painting with me this week at the Booth Western Art Museum's Booth Art Academy in Cartersville, Georgia.

 
We all painted flowers, but there wasn’t a floral painter in the class. We are all painters, and everything we studied applies to any and every subject. I think we were all surprised at the caliber of the work created over the course of three short days. Every single one of you worked hard and really excelled with your paintings, and we shared a lot of laughs in the process.
 
My thanks also to Kent, and everyone at the Booth Art Academy, for an absolutely first class teaching experience. Kimberly and I also got the chance to tour the museum this week, and we cannot recommend a visit to the Booth highly enough. We had such a great time that I am already planning to be back next year! - Patrick Saunders

Patrick Saunders Fine Arts Floral Workshop Demonstration Painting - Day One - Booth Western Art Museum

Here’s my first demonstration painting on day one of my floral workshop at the Booth Western Art Museum's Booth Art Academy.

I didn’t get very far, because the great group of artists I’m working with are very inquisitive and had a lot of questions, but it’s a good start. I painted this scene from a photograph of a poppy field taken when Kimberly and I visited the Fort Worth Botanic Garden again last month.

I chose the image for my demo because I wanted the artists in this class to see that my approach to a floral painting is always the same, whether it’s a single flower, or a busy, complicated scene like this one. It’s all about painting shapes and colors, not things. - Patrick Saunders
