Flowers & Paisley Painting Tutorial II



Welcome to Part II of my Flowers and Paisley Painting Tutorial. This is the second in the series of four tutorials from the collection below.


For today’s painting pleasure I’ll be showing you how to paint this fella on the right.

Without further adieu.. let’s get going, shall we? It’s as easy as a paint by number chart.

Since most of the instructions are identical for each canvas I won’t go into all the details here. For a full list of supplies, paint colors and complete tutorial hop on over to Part I of the Flowers & Paisley series. The sketch to create this art is attached at the bottom of the post.

Let’s go straight to the good stuff.

Here’s how.

  1. Dioxazine Purple almost straight from the tube and a speck of Titanium White. For the Centers add more Titanium white to your mixture
  2. Magenta straight out of the tube. The centers are Magenta mixed with Permanent Alizarin Crimson
  3. Cadmium yellow (pale hue) straight out of the tube
  4. Cadmium Red Light
  5. Cadmium yellow (pale hue) and Cadmium Red Light. This mixture varies for each petal. Work from the outside in to create the flower
  6. Dioxazine Purple and Titanium White
  7. Alternating without cleaning you brush, magenta with titanium white scallops
  8. Magenta (straight out of the tube
  9. Titanium White and Magenta
  10. Phathalo Green and Camium Yellow
  11. Naples Yellow and Cadmium Red Light

Some Tips

While the paint is still wet dry brush with white paint to highlight

I usually paint 2 coats on each area to achieve the vibrant colors

Remember to have fun it’s just paint you can always paint over it if you don’t like it
