Wild primroses – online tuition

Would you like to have a go at painting wild primroses, firstly by experimenting with greens, texture, shape and colour and then bringing all the techniques to together to paint a cluster of primroses.  The flowers are beautifully pale and the leaves are full of texture.

Tuition contents:

  • Permanent access to 2 videos:
  • Ongoing help by email should you have any questions and/or critique on work
  • Free monthly email with watercolour hints and tips

What you will learn:

Please don’t worry if you don’t have all these colours.  I would definitely recommend having an experiment with the paints you already have in your palette.
