The Complete Flower Painting Course with Jeremy Ford, Part 1

Keep your garden growing and your paints flowing with Jeremy's helpful instruction on painting flowers. In this video workshop, playing now on http://www.ArtistsNetwork.tv, Jeremy demonstrates how to paint basic leaf shapes, then guides you step by step through two painting demonstrations. In the first he paints a dandelion bouquet worthy of anyone's centerpiece, and in the second he helps you capture the bright colors of carnations. Along the way you'll learn wonderful wet-in-wet techniques, tips for glazing, masking and negative painting, and how to build a lovely flower painting from the soft background to the bright, sunlit highlights.

In this preview follow along with Jeremy to create the soft first layer of a colorful background for your flowers. Visit http://www.ArtistsNetwork.tv for access to the full-length version of this video.
