Trish’s garden must be looking gorgeous!

Gorgeous

Wonderful

Beautiful pattern is everywhere in nature. A walk in a rainforest at Buderim this morning on the Sunshine Coast and I spotted these striking shadows on a tree trunk. Loads of inspiration to paint from a little morning meander.

I love the texture in this painting..

FABULOUS!

Maybe one day...

So beautiful

It was a case of Carpe Diem this morning with the beautiful spring blossoms because if I didn’t capture them I would miss out as on my way now to visit my mum on the Sunshine Coast. The blossoms are here, heralding spring so briefly and won’t be there when I get back! Miraculously left myself just enough time to clean up, change, stuff s few things into my case and get to the airport with plenty of time! Amazing what you can do in 3 hours with a little assistance from friends. Thanks for the lift to the airport!

Absolutely stunning

Beautiful! Enjoy your visit with your Mom 😊

So beautiful! Wow!

Beautiful.

Still finishing my Anenomes inspired by a trip to Paris early 2020 to a gorgeous florist in the Marais. Not too far off on this one . It’s a painting lesson for my Make Money From Art program students and we’ve been working together online today which has been fun. Loving these colours. So rich. And the canvas is building up a beautiful lustre as it nears completion. It’s building up a well fed with paint and colour appearance! #parisflorist #anenome #anenomes #floralart #floraldesign #floralartist #adultartclass #adultartclasses #adultartclassesdubai #acrylicpainting #acrylicart #acrylicpaints #acrylicpainttechniques #howtopaint #howtopaintflowerswithacrylics #jacquelinecoatesstudio♥️ ...

Painting weekend!

Time to finish off as many of my unfinished paintings as I can! Love starting paintings! It’s the last ten percent though of the effort that makes them go off the Richter scale and look amazing

I am joined by two of my new students in my Make Money from Art program painting alongside me as they work on their paintings. And my other students joining me on zoom! From Canada, San Diego, New Zealand, and Australia!

I’ll share my paintings as I finish them. For more details on my two year painting and launching as an Artist program visit this link;

I’m painting my way through this pandemic. It’s the only way!

What does an art teacher do on her weekend? She paints up a storm with her two of her friends, who haven’t painted before, and we all have a lot of fun, from midday to midnight, with a feast of Barossa produce, a few bottles of bubbles and a heap of oil paints, canvases and blossoms.

We became philosophers of the universe AND produced a heap of beautiful paintings.

I’ll be sharing my oil impasto spring blossoms tuition soon. It’s a looser approach and all about mark making and the sensuality and colour of the paint as well as the form. There’s lots to learn in order to have something that holds together AND let’s go but my two girlfriends did well with it after I showed them the how.

To keep in the loop about forthcoming fun creative projects, join me in my free inspiration area of the blooms artist community for updates and new releases. I have a few fun projects coming up! And don’t we all need that? Here’s the link;

So much fun! Keep painting and keep having fun! No matter what!

Jaqueline is this workshop in oils or acrylics?

Would love this but covid has locked me down for work.

This is exciting. How do I link in.

But worth it to you

Wod love too

Hi beauty ❤️

Beautiful painting

May I use PayPal? If so how?

Will try to join you

Booked in last night. Next was mad scramble to find some paint in the garage. Found a bit, very old Matisse mostly but seems ok. 🤞. Have been thinking of doing Jacqueline’s classes for months. Can’t believe I actually did it! I do tend to procrastinate 😂. Looking forward to meeting All later this morning.

Nice

❤️❤️❤️

Hello from Dubai, very much interested. Would appreciate a date so I can make sure I'm available to attend. Please let me know. Appreciate it

You mean THURSDAY for US, right?

It’s always great to complete a painting and be on top of the challenges it gave throughout the process.

Here’s a peek inside my current Barossa Blooms Painting Workshop at Salon Rouge today.

I love seeing my Blooms Painting Workshops students achieve. Congratulations to everyone!

Here is the link to the next workshop dates including Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth. I teach my No Fail Blooms Painting Method.

We are already on the second canvas!

Your students' paintings are so beautiful!; you are a great teacher. Wish I lived closer. I just love your art.

On my wish list .

Espectacular. Congratulation

Any chance of holding a workshop in Brisbane? 🌺

What’s in a name when buying a pink colour?

It can be confusing working out what to buy from varying paint brands labels.

Pink is a colour used frequently with painting flowers and in my Blooms Painting Workshops.

Here are four accessible pinks and my findings;

Liquitex Medium Magenta
In some paint ranges magenta is closer to violet . In this case it’s a barbie doll pink. And very useful. Semi transparent and a nice flow.
Go lighter by adding white but you can’t go darker. A handy premixed colour.

Montmarte Rose Madder
A colour by this name in other ranges is often a permanent rose colour so a bit confusing on the label but inside for the price of a student paint is an explosion of deep pink pigment you can take from dark through to light. Thumbs up!

Reeves Rose Red
Reliable colour but translucentish unless you add something opaque like titanium white. Handy and inexpensive.
When the name of the colour doesn’t refer to the pigment content but sounds more like a Revlon lipstick colour it’s going to be made of synthetic substitutes but it still gives reasonable results.

Winsor & Newton Quinacridone Violet
Professional quality with little colour shift when dry. Packs a punch but costs more. Excellent quality pigments and a stalwart in my paintbox.

My recommendations
Any of these will do the job but if I could choose only one it would be the Winsor and Newton Quinacridone Violet for the impact of the colour and the depth of colour and range I can create from that.
If I had a second choice then the Montmarte Rose Madder.

The next thing is learning how to get your pinks to zing not fall flat. I teach exactly this in my Blooms Magenta Rose One Day Workshop online with some live training coming up this week.

If can offer my VIP discount of $30 to access the recordings and the live training this week coming ( I am doing three different time zones so everyone can do it to their hours ) . This is the last week I am doing the lives and the feedback has been fab. No previous experience necessary.
