Video Archive: White Hydrangeas in Green, Painting in Oils with Pat Fiorello


Floral Still Life in oils

Paint white hydrangeas in a celadon green pitcher. Lesson will focus on painting white flowers (tip they aren’t really white) and creating form with light and shadow.

Join Pat Fiorello, an instructor who has led more than 10 programs abroad with Il Chiostro since 2008, for a paint-along session where you’ll create a beautiful still life painting in oil.

Painting will focus on achieving convincing form and depth, rich, clean color and expressive brushwork.

What students from Pat’s past zoom classes had to say…

Another great class today. You really have strong teaching skills. I learned a LOT. The full hour allocated to critiques at the back end of your classes is so helpful. Your lessons sink in so well when you can point to examples of issues on someone’s canvas, but you also teach how to correct. And you are always very complimentary and talk about the positives as well.  ~ SG

It was fun! You are the best teacher ever! Thank you so much, time goes by so fast in your classes because they’re so engaging!   ~AW
