posted in: Online Classes

Hello, chances are you have followed the link I sent you for our online class this Thursday evening. Where hopefully you can paint along with me and create a sunflower, like this one, and learn some watercolour glazing techniques along the way.


If you’d like to join in, you can download my original line drawing  image below.

For our session you will need:
  • Your sunflower printout, ordinary copy paper is fine for this exercise.
  • A spare piece of paper to try out your paint mixes on before applying colour to your painting.
  • Watercolour paints a warm yellow, cool yellow, brown & blue.
  • Watercolour brushes.
Here are the actual colours I used to paint the above image
