Part two of our birthday celebration tutorial is the Sarracenia leaves in colour. This may look daunting but don't be afraid; take a small section and see how you get on.
This is a great project for getting to know veins and their intricate patterns; also how to enhance and develop sections of a painting to emphasis foreground and background. The complete painting is something you can do over small sessions, I will eventually show you my way to depict the moss that surrounds the plant.
So hard hats on, we are going in!
Available to watch in full from Monday, March 13th with our paid monthly and annual subscription plans.
