Grungy Florals

taught by Shawn Petite

Course description


My style has always been a little messy and grungy, so when I wanted to create florals, I knew that I had to do something different. Something with lots of layers, and paper, drips, finger marks, stencils work and oh so much more.

I knew I wanted to create from my minds eye not as a realistic floral composition, which again adds to that grungy feeling.

Throw in some palette knife work and "voila!"

You've got a Grungy Florals Workshop!



In this workshop you will create 4 separate grungy florals. 

We will use additive and reductive techniques along with palette knife and brush work.

Learning how layers and layers and then more layers create a truly fascinating work of art.

We cover light and shadow, using blending, glazing medium and charcoal.

I will also guide you through making the most delicious background that you will use in SO MANY PROJECTS!   

Moving on to middle ground and focal point, creating effortless flowers with depth and dimension 

Pulling it all together with finishing touches that make your piece come to life.

I share what works and what doesn't, I also show what happens when I make mud with my paint or how I correct with contrast.

Well Hello There!

My name is Shawn Petite and I’m a mixed media artist living my dream of creating every day and my passion for art has been with me from childhood.

I've been teaching and painting for over 26 years in many different mediums, but found my art soul mate in mixed media. 

I’ve been published in several magazines, been part of Donna Downey’s Artist Gang/Brand Ambassador and Deco Art Media Design teams.

I produce my own line of stencils and create soulful and informative workshops on mixed media.

But most importantly, I try everyday to encourage and inspire. To show love with my paint brush. To leave my little corner of the world a better place.

My favorite quote: I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. " Maya Angelou
