I thoroughly enjoyed learning the step by step process of how to paint beautiful flowers with oils. I was astonished on how simple it actually is. I found Tracy to be very supportive and encouraging throughout the workshop and I am looking forward to further workshops with her in future to further my skills. I learnt I have the ability to create a stunning piece of art for myself, friends, or even for selling!</p><h4 style="">Tanya Williams</h4><span><img alt="Tanya Williams Close Focus Flowers Paintings" data-id="46205" width="427" data-init-width="660" height="537" data-init-height="830" title="Tanya Williams Close Focus Flowers Paintings" loading="lazy" src="https://articci.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/Tanya-Williams-Close-Focus-Flowers.jpg" data-width="427" data-height="537" style=""></span><p style="text-align: center;">❝</p><p style="text-align: center;">❝</p><span><img alt="Deanne Skehan Close Focus Flowers" data-id="42303" width="430" data-init-width="675" height="573" data-init-height="900" title="Deanne-Skehan-Close-Focus-Flowers" loading="lazy" src="https://articci.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/Deanne-Skehan-Close-Focus-Flowers.jpg" data-width="430" data-height="573" style=""></span><h3 style=""><strong>"I saw Tracy transform the class from a majority of first time painters, to a class of artists"</strong></h3><p style="">I needed to challenge myself by attempting something out of much comfort zone. The course had a great atmosphere, and even when the pressure was on Tracy made me feel relaxed and able to achieve what I set out to do. I saw Tracy transform the class from a majority of first time painters, to a class of artists, producing magnificent pieces of art. It was brilliant to see what she could do in three days, with the class. The impossible was possible and I painted the large Dahlia in oils. A medium I have never used and believed I could not work with. Tracy convinced and encouraged me and I am now on my third huge oil painting and loving every moment I get to paint.</p><h4 style="">Deanne Skehan</h4>", "image": "https://articci.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/Dahlias.jpg", "name": "Close Focus Flowers Painting Workshop", "url": "https://articci.com/events/close-focus-flowers-painting-workshop/" }
