Strelitzia Reginae, Bird of paradise is so named because the flowers have the appearance of long beak birds. They are wonderfully colourful, beautifully strange and make a fantastic study for us to paint. This week’s tutorial will cover the beautiful orange petals that emerge from the top of the pointed sepal.
Available to watch in full from Monday, February 11th with our paid monthly and annual subscription plans.
