In this lesson, "Pink Roses in a Green Vase", Ginger asks you "What have you learned?". This January 2020 Art Challenge is designed for Academy members that are painting at the Proficient Level (aka 3-Cookie Level) or higher. The following painting is accompanied by a short 18-minute video. Rather than a step by step long video of how to paint this. There will be just general instructions on how to complete the painting. The video only explains how to mix colors, and what to look for when do this painting. You may send it in for Personal Art Coaching any time during this challenge and there is no time limit to complete.
Check out some of the paints from the recipients of the Certificate of Achievement here.
In the resources, you will see the original painting by the Master artist, Emil Carlsen and Ginger's...which is a combination of impressionism and detailed art.
Your challenge is to match his greens or Ginger's greens, get the shape of the roses correct, and the bowl in the front must be an oval like the original painting. The vase can have a little leeway on the shape. These are required to earn the "Certificate of Achievement".
After you have received confirmation from Ginger that you have earned the certificate, please visit this page to let us know how you would like to have your certificate delivered.
The "Pink Roses in a Green Vase" is painted on an 11"x14" stretched canvas using Ginger's standard palette of colors.
See "Supplies Needed" below.
This is a "3-Cookie" lesson.
Paint the same size or larger canvas. Ginger's is an 11x14. Match the colors and composition, then submit the final painting to Ginger through our PAC Ticket system for approval and to receive a certificate of completion.
