Too cute not to share with you straight away.
I'm setting up cottage garden flowers for an online painting lesson. I'm thinking watercolours, but, I could also demo these in oils or acrylics. Any preference?
Watercolours will be the hardest as the water should be the master, not the artist, or it isn't a watercolour, even if you use watercolours to paint with. You have to allow the water to move some of the paint around and be prepared for, and to manipulate, but not over control, the many happy accidents.
That's probably as clear as mud if you aren't familiar with watercolours, so, I'll strive to demonstrate what I mean.
Follow along with the lesson, as I post parts here.
Grab your own paints and pant a flower and share it here, in this post. No commercial links.
Ask questions about the painting, or your painting.
The flowers from my garden that I'll be painting tonight.
A tip for watercolorists. If you want to create a vibrant red flower, under-paint the paper with yellow first. Try that and tell me what you think? Want to paint loose watercolours—REAL watercolours? Then begin working with your paper pre-wet.
The tutorial video, of the panting of these flowers, willl go up on my website when completed.
