Copyright of the actual tutorial images remain with Billy Showell, therefore the tutorial paintings should not be exhibited, sold or reproduced as original work by the student; they can however be gifted to friends or family or sold in aid of charity and should be labelled in the title as taken from a Billy Showell tutorial. Similar subjects live or from photographs should be found and then you can use the techniques shown in the tutorial to create an original piece for exhibition sale or reproduction. Following theses guidelines should avoid any accusation of copy or breech of copyright by the gallery or art exhibition curator.
It is advised that painters always credit billyshowell.com when sharing any work derived from this site.

Part two of my little bouquet is a revisit to a favourite of mine the Japanese anemone; it is a white one this time so the secret is all in the shadows. I think that trying to paint white flowers really got me hooked on Botanical painting. My dear mother in law Edith Cook, painted the most beautiful white lilies which caught my eye one day at their house in Lincolnshire, then I saw the exquisite flowers of Pandora Sellars in a Shirley Sherwood book and together these two lady's work pushed me towards trying to paint the perfect petal shadow.
I do hope you have fun adding our first little flower.

I'm so glad I got my two books last week before they ran out! The illustrations are very beautiful. I must say that these are the most helpful books on painting I have ever seen with so many lessons. I have tried botanical painting before but not with a lot of success, but I feel hopeful now of achieving a result I like. Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge so generously.
