More about this course

In this class you are going to learn how to paint a flower from scratch painting with light and shadows, otherwise known as painting with values, and finally, how to apply colour to it.

The method used will allow you to paint render your flower and apply as many colors as you want in a snap, with the help of blending modes. 

You can apply this technique to any other subject matter of your liking!

The course project

The final project is a flower that you first will paint using a greyscale to then apply the color. Then, you will paint it in different colors, to use the technique taught in this class.

You can either create the same one I created, or you can chose any other of your liking. Also, if you prefer to create something different to a flower, that's alright too! 

The methods used apply to any subject matter. You will be in awe on how fast an easy it is to colour your artwork once the foundation is set and ready!
