  • This project is one of my favourite flowers and I really hope you will enjoy it. I have tried to keep the process as simple as possible so that you will all have success with your paintings. The colours are fun to mix and it is a good example of how to keep light on a receding edge. We will visit tulips again as there are so many varieties  available - Enjoy!
    Best wishes Billy.

Brand New Tutorial - Rose Hips

Brand New Tutorial - Rose Hips

This weeks project is a rose hip study, this is quite a long tutorial for such a small project but the small things often take the longest. Beginners should practice the berries over and over to get the soft shine perfected and as you improve, practice the stems until they are smooth and straight. The camera is very close on this project so the paper looks rough but it is still the same Fabriano hot pressed, also the edges will be a little fluffy at the start, this close but you can tidy them up as I do nearer the end of the painting. Enjoy! Billy Available to watch in full from Monday, January 5th with our paid monthly and 6 monthly subscription plans.

Thank you for the card tutorial on mistletoe. Your work is inspiring, I loved the quin. gold touch and who would have thought silver leaf would give that dramatic lift. D.C 2014

I have been watching the tutorial on the Hollyhock off and on the last couple of days. I LOVE IT! I have photographed several of my own Hollyhocks' and after some practice, I hope to adapt the techniques which you demonstrate and replicate (with watercolour) some of my flowers.Watching your DVD was like therapy -- it was so relaxing and refreshing. Your painting instruction via book/DVD has been a great blessing to me. Thank you again. C from Canada 2014
