Floral Still Life Quilt Reimagined, #55112f

Day: Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Location: Lincoln Room
Teacher: Katie Pasquini Masopust
Level: All levels
Member: $88 Retail: $110

 


This class is based on the idea of an underpainting. Many painters lay down a “ground” color called an underpainting, and that ground color then influences the colors of the overpainting, unifying the composition. You will begin by making a simple still life inspired by actual still life, creating a background, foreground, and simplified vase and flowers against a contrasting foundation fabric. You will then cut up the creation to reassemble the parts on a second foundation of the same color creating a grid like construction, and the results are amazing.
