If you’re anything like me, every time you spot a beautiful flower, you feel compelled to capture it on paper.
So often, we feel inspired to paint subjects with bold, vivid colours. But when it comes to actually painting them, their attractive hues can sometimes work against us.
We can become blinded by the beauty of their vibrancy, and stop paying attention to the tonal changes. This can result in disappointment from a painting that doesn’t look 3D enough.
In this mini-class, I’m sharing with you the process I followed to paint this colourful daisy flower.
I show you how I used bright, bold hues to achieve vibrancy, but also worked to create a 3D effect to make the flower pop off the paper.
I hope this mini-class has inspired you to paint your own colourful daisy flower, and that it’s given you the confidence to paint more flowers in vibrant colours.
If you give this African Daisy painting a go, I’d love to hear how you get on, so let me know in the comments below. And do also drop me a message if you enjoyed the video. I love reading them!
