Evolution of a painting

I love watching artists paint. I think it’s magical. The way they see things inside their heads and then choose colours and brushes to bring that vision to life.

Just last week I managed to spend some time alone in my studio painting these flowers in delicious, juicy, GOLDEN Paint colours. And just in case you like watching artists too – I actually remembered to document the process!

Starting with a gorgeous natural linen canvas, I sketched my plan in charcoal before building up the background using large brushes and then progressively adding detail with smaller brushes.

Hope you enjoy this window into the evolution of this painting I have called ‘The Everlasting Bouquet’. I’ll have it available for sale soon… I’m just enjoying looking at it for a while first!

My life’s mission is to share the joy of drawing and painting.

In 2011 I started offering in-studio guided Paint Alongs, and my first online course, 15 Flowers, went live in 2015.

I now offer online Paint Alongs and workshops so that you can reconnect to the creativity inside you. Gift yourself the time to paint, and the guidance you need to improve your skills and your confidence.
