Autumn is in the air and it’s time to paint some lovely sunflowers! We’ll start with a relaxed contour line drawing. It’s a fun and simple way to draw any subject. Then, we’ll add watercolour for the sunny yellow leaves and warm dark centres. Working from a little bouquet of fresh sunflowers in a glass jar, you’ll create a dynamic flower painting. Watercolour techniques learned can be used for any subject.
