My passion for flowers has taught me to create a painting that captures their essence. Have you always wished that you could create a painting of your favourite blossom?

History of Flower Painting is rich. Botanical paintings have been used for many years to preserve the beauty of various flowers and plants. A flower painted in a way that preserves its original appearance is magical. Although flower photographs are a great way to preserve memories, when painting you can enjoy the pleasure of looking at the shapes and colors of each leaf, petal, or stamen. Use the information you gather from the light to bring the flower to life on your page. The flowers become more familiar to you when they are painted.
Anyone who is interested in painting should start with a flower they love, no matter what the complexity. Choose your favourite to motivate yourself to do it again. The feelings you have will be more likely to show up in your flower painting. The artist has used their feelings to make you feel something when they painted the flower. Even if the results aren’t flawless, don’t worry. With each attempt, the shapes will be more familiar to you. Paint will feel easier.
You will find some helpful techniques to help you with flower painting. There will be many art books available in your bookshop that cover this topic. You should not simply copy an artist’s style. You might be disappointed with the result if your goal is to observe a flower that’s your favourite and refine your image of it.
All your work will be saved if you try different things and have fun. Practise will help you improve your drawing skills. Use pastels both in the creamy oily variety and the powdery soft ones. It’s because I can use them in so many different colours – from pale pastels to intense hues. The effect can be enhanced by layering thin colours on top of each other, so that the colour underneath is able to show through. Try watercolour, or even a combination of both. The watercolour technique has been popular with flower painters, botanical artists for many decades. How you can let one beautiful colour randomly flow into another is mouth-watering.
