online class - pattern playing
Let’s play with patterns!
In this 3+ hour video class I welcome you into the wonderful world of patterns. Step by step, I’ll be guiding you through the process; from gathering inspiration, choosing a colour palette, designing your own patterns, applying them and create an amazing abstract piece of art.
Creating your own pattern design is the perfect way to completely lose yourself in the process. You don’t have to think too much; it can even feel like a meditation. Warning: it’s very addictive! 😉

online class - fabuluz flower fields
Would you like to:
If the answer to one of these questions is ‘Yes’, please join me! This class is designed to help you, whether you are a beginner or you have already experience with acrylic paint and acrylic inks.
In this 6 hour long class, I’ll be offering you a step by step guide in how to create a flower field painting with acrylic paint and defining your flower close-ups with acrylic ink. This is your chance to paint the flower field of your dreams.
This is the perfect time to get inspired by wild flowers like poppies and cornflowers! For this class I took a few days out to find a perfect location. I had something in mind: a perfect flower field with beautiful wild flowers, a quiet place to work and a painterly surrounding.
In my search for inspiration, I found a lot flowers, from walking around in the town to residential areas and even by the roadside. It turns out you don’t need an entire field at all! You don’t have to travel far, if at all! For those of you living with mobility issues, or with no easy acces to a garden or more rural areas, you could browse through your photo library, from which to gather inspiration… there is inspiration to be found in a humble bunch of flowers or a window box.
online class - trees in the light
This class (5 hours of video lessons!) is all about trees. They are very important for us. We need them, giving us oxygen, we use their wood to build our houses and warm ourselves… and where would us artists be without paper, brushes, easels and all those stuff… And of course, they are a great source of inspiration for many painters! That’s why this class is dedicated to our wonderful tree friends.
In the class we’ll work with acrylic paint and acrylic inks. We make a series of 4 trees. What makes this class such a rich experience is that you’re not solely focusing on trees as a subject, but also using tools which trees have provided for us. We’re working on wooden panels and using twigs for some of the detailed line work.
Another good thing about trees is, they’re always there! This class is suitable for all seasons. Wonderful blossom trees in spring, full and green crowns in summer, rusty colours in autumn and even in winter you can focus on the bare trees or evergreen trees.
Gathering inspiration in France, I invite you to go outside to meet your favourite trees and take the energy of them into your sketch. Back in my studio I show you how to make your tree series with acrylic paint and acrylic inks. From working on the foundation, colour choice and composition, through to developing your painting until you’re satisfied: I will share my process, step by step!
online class - painting - landscapes in lines
Have you always been excited by beautiful abstract landscapes and had a desire to create one yourself? How can you design your perfect composition? And, most importantly, how can you truly tell your story in a painting?
Well, in this online painting workshop you learn how to create an art piece with several acrylic layers and a strong compositional build up with lines. But first we step outside to discover the great Dutch landscapes and see how we can use their natural lines in our sketches. Last but not least, we enjoy the adventure of being outside. Because that’s one of the best things about being in nature and sketching!
Next we move inside, to capture our specific story.
What was the best of what we experienced outside and how can we put that into a perfect painting? We develop a color palette that matches the story. After that, we apply our first layer and finally put our favorite sketch on the canvas. You get a step by step plan to finish your painting.
the magic of abstract painting
What’s so amazing about abstract painting? You can fully focus on the magic of colors and composition. Because it doesn’t have to ‘be something’, it’s just what it is.
When working on your art piece, you learn how to translate your story into colors and compositions that explain your world better than words ever could.
painting with acrylic
Luz is passionate about acrylic paint. If you look in the portfolio you will see that almost all the work is done with acrylics. It’s no surprise that this will be the material we will use to tell our stories with in most of the online painting classes. Another thing we will discover in, future workshops, is mixed media techniques. For each online art class you’ll get a list of supplies that you need.
