Tiny Rose Bud - Free Tutorial

In this tutorial we are adding a small rose bud and leaf to a beautiful pink rose study. Once you have mastered this you can add other buds and leaves to create a wonderful chintz inspired composition. Draw them out first onto tracing paper and make sure you are happy with the position before you paint them in.

Paint on tip toe with a happy heart. Billy x

Red and Gold Calla Lily - Free Tutorial

One of my all-time favourites for all levels of painting confidence; the washes are fabulous to mix and blend, the shape is simple but elegant and it is a great flower head to add to your sketchbook. Draw it at many angles and get the most from your flower.

Happy painting. Best Billy x

Painters Block - Free Tutorial

Painters block is so annoying, we say to ourselves; 'yes I finally have time to myself to paint,' and then you spend all your time tidying the drawers of your desk rather than painting! Picking up something small and simple may be the way through, there is no pressure, no hours spent drawing, no pressure to complete just a simple 'pick the brush and go'.

Small things are the the start and big things will follow, as once you start painting everything else fades away.
