Today, 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.

Sandy Allnock - Just One Petal

I’ll talk a little more about the book that this lesson is from after you check out the video.

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.
