Painting loose floral bouquets can be complicated and frustrating for some, especially beginners. In this class, I show the basic brush strokes for painting a rose, a David Austin rose, and a carnation using different brushes in real time. While it is possible to create a beautiful watercolor bouquet using one round brush or a pointed mop brush, I find that certain types of brushes are ideal for achieving different flowers. This is why I decided to demonstrate painting each flower using a specific type of brush. I am also painting this floral bouquet with Autumn / Fall colors, a color combination that a lot of people love because of its warm, nostalgic appearance. I hope you enjoy watching the steps that I share in this class and paint along with me!
After I show how each type of flower is painted, I will also guide you through painting the whole Autumn themed floral bouquet. I encourage you to paint the bouquet as I have shown in this class, then at a later time, paint this bouquet again using your own mix of colors and arrangement so you can appreciate this process even more.
