Art-Along Watercolour Sunflower 26/03/2020

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

Cadmium yellow or Gamboge
Lemon yellow or Hansa yellow
Burnt Umber
Cobalt or Phthalo Blue
Sap Green
