Flowers and watercolors are such a perfect pairing. It's almost as if the paint wants to help me produce soft, colorful petals. I often paint flowers after tackling a particularly difficult portrait or still-life because they really help me loosen up.
If you would like to learn how to paint flowers (or want to learn basic skills), I've developed two pads of watercolor paper with Strathmore that come with step-by-step instructional material and videos. Learn more about them here!
