In the experience of the fleeting glance you will look to capture the illustrative narrative of the floral subject in honoring the dance between the I and the thou of the image before you.

Through a series of painterly gestures in color, the same way a poet using language to symbolize the greater meanings, you will develop painterly characters and characteristics taken from within the soul.


As students move in time from representationalism, impressionism towards abstraction of their subject the floral and landscapes becomes a proxy for your vision.  In abstracting via deconstruction to reconstruction you will look towards a new reality in a way that makes the painting its own subject.


Students can work from a still-life, photos or one’s imagination when flowing within the various genres from the moments of Impressionism towards the aesthetics of Expressionism and Abstraction.


Dmitri will provide from his unique approach in the art of creativity multiple idea generators , options and various methods to assist in capturing the essence of your vision through your chosen materials and genre.
