Make your Flowers Sing: Take a complicated reference photo and eliminate unnecessary details to turn it into a more powerful painting. Learn to shape your flowers and curve the petals with just a simple brush stroke. Create shadows with complimentary colors without making mud.
Wild Iris: Learn how to bend petals and go deep into the shadows, understand why brush size matters to the success of your painting, control water, eliminate blooms, create smooth blended color, shadows and values, use complementary colors to make the painting more brilliant.
The Pansy: This may look simple but it's really not, the challenge of this little flower is how to make color vibrant by placing complimentary color side-by-side then using the same colors mixed to create the shadows and avoid getting mud.
