Wendy’s online painting tuition – PROJECT 1

Painting florals fast and loose with a slow start

Hi everyone

Glad you could join me for this first project. We shall be painting blackthorn blossom or a blossom/flower of your choice. Here is the YouTube video related to Project 1. Click to play.

You can do and send in the Projects in any order!

Below is a gallery of some of the images shown in the video that you may find useful when painting your own blossom pictures.

I also have a download of the worksheet I made to help me understand the structure of the blackthorn flower, a blackthorn photograph and two downloads of my drawings.

For this Project, I suggest you do the following:

  1. Do a series of pencil drawings to help you understand the structure of your flower/blossom
  2. Paint a single flower with a wet into wet background.
  3. Do a well observed drawing with more detail/flowers and have a go at painting it as quickly as you can.


I have set up a gallery page for members to show their work. You can email me an image and if appropriate and there is space I shall put it in the ‘painters gallery’ with your first name and initial.
