Pop-in & Paint: Painting Flowers in Oil

Starts - Wednesday 14 December 2022

Tashkeel Artist-in-Residence (2022-23), Alonsa Guevara is a New York-based artist originally from Rancagua, Chile. Her paintings are a window to an imaginary universe where the lines between fantasy and reality are blurred. Her work explores questions of womanhood, identity and belonging while celebrating the connection between humankind and nature. Her main inspiration derives from the experiences of living in three different countries, and is especially impacted by formative childhood memories of living in the Ecuadorian rainforest with her family for seven years. Alonsa subsequently returned to Chile to receive her BFA from Pontifical Catholic University in 2009. In 2011, she moved to New York for the MFA programme at the New York Academy of Art. She was awarded the Elizabeth Greenshields Grant in 2013 and received the Academy's Fellowship in 2015. Alonsa's work has been published in Forbes Magazine, Time Out NYC Magazine, VICE, among others and has been exhibited internationally, including China, Mexico, Denmark, Argentina and Chile. Her most recent solo show ‘Apparitions’ was in 2021 at Anna Zorina Gallery, New York.

Painting flowers1

Join Tashkeel Artist-in-Residence Alonsa Guevara for an oil painting workshop suitable for artists of all levels, from beginners to advanced.

The three-hour workshop will enable participants to learn different oil painting techniques while working from a still life flower set-up. Under Alonsa’s careful guidance, they will be encouraged to work from observation capturing light, colour and detail from reality. At the same time, participants will have the freedom to play with their creativity and imagination. Colour development, colour mixing and the lack of black will be important subjects covered during the session.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be familiar with oil painting techniques and will be able to continue to develop their flower painting skills through ongoing practice.
