Painting Loose Florals & Landscapes, Two Days of Intense Fun!

Abstract Florals from Loose, Colorful Splatters
Paint modern, loose abstract florals that sell like crazy. Learn the secrets of Monet and others as you turn those colorful splashes into quick little gems. These Burridge “daily warmups.” Playing with wild colors, you will paint loose starts into little beauties. 

You will learn how to make a vase of abstract flowers from a mess, using reductive painting techniques. We will work with different vase shapes, styles and learn how to paint stems and water!

Loose Abstract Landscapes
Paint with free rein and learn to run wild with looser landscape painting. Learn quick spontaneity with your imagination for maximum effect! Paint warm-up exercises using Bob’s four favorite basic compositions: Horizontal, Tunnel, Asymmetrical and Golden Section.

We will work with black and white acrylic paint to learn structure and value. Then switch to color, using both transparent and opaque acrylics.

If you are looking for more fun, this is for you! Burridge’s positive, fearless and supportive approach inspires everyone to paint with endless possibilities. Many demos, painting time and critiques from Bob. All levels. Handouts will be emailed.


Robert Burridge, a noted award-winning Industrial Designer who, after twenty-five years in the corporate world, focused his life to painting every day. Burridge attributes his success to his education from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, his stint as an adjunct professor at Cooper Union in New York City, and in 1966, his Fluxus art performances with Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik, Jim McWilliams and Charlotte Moorman.

His work hangs in permanent collections of international embassies, corporate galleries and art colleges. His solo museum exhibitions received positive attention, so he was invited to exhibit his paintings at the Smithsonian Folklife Circus Arts Festival in Washington, DC.
