In this tip video I wanted to show you how I went about tackling a painting of one of the more complex flowers in the garden – the Agapanthus.

They are certainly daunting. And not only do you want to get their structure looking right – but you want each individual bloom, as well as the whole itself to have a 3D quality.

Here I show you how I approach it:

So why not grab your sketchbook and try out some of these techniques!

Happy painting,

    You are amazing! I would love to be able to paint like you. I am just starting out.

    For me the thing is drawing the flower in the first place. Purchased a light box but not for me,..
    Love your beautifully detailed paintings.

    It would be good to have you comments outside the picture. Trying to watch the video with you doing the work under the writing…is impossible. But loved it …

    Thank you for the details regarding sequence of colours you have applied. The 3D effect makes you think that you actually viewing the real Agapanthus. Very tricky!
