In homage to my favourite colour and another shoe for you to paint if you wish, we are combining the Gladioli with leaves and seeds. Of course, you can rearrange the flowers to create single studies too.
In the first part we look at the just the Gladioli and achieving confident pink washes and lifting light; we follow on with mastering the damp sweep and tea washes to build shadow and colour. We finish with a myriad of mark making to pull together the detail of the centre and variegation.
This stunning flower will stretch your skills and bring all your knowledge gathered so far together to really create a three-dimensional looking flower.
This is a lush favourite Billy flower to kick start 2022. I hope you will love it. Happy new year! Billy x
