Surrounded by Love, White Lilies and Hydrangeas, is the newest daily painting on the easel in Flower Mound Studio. I was delighted to get a big response to my post yesterday, providing tips on how to paint red poppies. Over 200 folks tuned in! I will provide more tips for you in the future, and eventually put these into a collection.
If you've been following my art blog for a while, you may already be familiar with my step by step paintings, where I provide each step of a painting for you in images. I start with a completely transparent underpainting, then move into opaque colors as a last step, a final reward for all the hard work of building a foundation of color that will play well with the final values. Put a little joy in your brush and join me for a flower painting workshop! I'll be teaching in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, next spring. What say let's put on our vacation hats and make some flowers bloom on the beach!
