Paint a Flower in 3 Minutes Video – Avoca Painting School

Paint a Flower in 3 Minutes with Avoca Painting School! Rod Coyne puts the Tuesday Morning class through their paces – and they come up shining! Soundtrack by Remo De Vico:

“Recently we tried some really cool painting exercises in the Avoca Painting School with a 3 minute colour sketch in acrylic paint. I’ll really recommend this exercise for anyone wanting to loosen up the brush stokes, you’ll be amazed how much you can depict in such a short time”, says Rod Coyne.

Arts Minister private-lesson with Rod Coyne

Heather Humphreys, Minister of Arts, enthusiastically lauds Rod Coyne for his artwork and his success with the Avoca Painting School. It was a full house at Origin Gallery, Dublin, when she revealed her pleasure with Coyne’s private lesson undertaken earlier in 2015.  “It was somewhat ironic teaching the Minister of Arts to paint, but she took quite naturally to the challenge, and produced a great piece to the benefit of the Cill Rialaig Charity. I am so grateful to her for launching my exhibition tonight” – Rod Coyne.

There is a HD version of the video on YouTube.

The classes are suitable for beginner and advanced painters, as Rod will be going through the basics towards achieving a finished piece, “my aim is not to teach students paint in my style, but to be a facilitator opening doors to each students individual creativity”. The course content will include drawing and observational skills, composition, tonal and colour studies.
