I created this painting – and video – months ago….eeep, it’s finally been edited! I’m calling it #6 in the watercolor flowers series that I started a while back – you can see the whole set HERE.
Watercolor Flowers Series
It’s just one flower petal, since filming the entire flower would have been crazy-long (and I would have run out of things to say!) But you get the idea from just one petal – so that’s what I show you on today’s video. I’ll talk a little more about the book that this lesson is from after you check out the video..watch it below or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube!
I discovered Anna Mason‘s book called The Modern Flower Painter when I visited Daniel Smith a few months ago; while the techniques she uses for her amazing watercolor flowers are far beyond most of us, I was inspired to try one anyway! Mine isn’t nearly as detailed as her sample, but….it was still a good challenge! I did ask her permission to share my video and she delightfully said yes.
I also found Anna’s teaching website – I’ll be working my way through her classes as I have time, probably getting more into them in the fall timeframe, so watch for more about Anna coming up. And I’m hoping to one day get to take a live class from her!
