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, 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 for access to the full-length version of this video.
