If you have ever looked at Eucalyptus flowers and thought they are too difficult to paint, then this is the tutorial for you. In this short course you will learn to observe Eucalyptus flowers, looking at the light and shade, in order to then draw a tonal study. After completing a careful, detailed drawing you will move on to paint the flowers from two slightly different angles., and then paint them in detail. I will talk you through every step, showing that they are not that difficult if you just go one step at a time.
This is bonus content, useful for students who have completed the tutorial "Introduction to Botanical Art - Eucalyptus leaves". However it isn't absolutely necessary to have completed that tutorial. This tutorial is fairly casual, I'm just talking as I'm painting and there is minimal editing.
I am a botanical artist with over 20 years experience and I have created two tutorials already - both introductions to botanical art, one painting Eucalyptus leaves and the other painting an Acacia - leaves and flowers. Botanical art is immensely popular at the moment and it is a beautiful art form. By painting the wonderful natural wonders we see around us, we encourage others to take a closer look at these marvels. My hope is that by painting and teaching, I will help others see the beauty in their surroundings, and therefore increase their interest and love for nature.

It was short and sweet and I really enjoyed that, learnt and was inspired. It was a bit too slow - then I realised I could amp it up x2 speed. I would like to have seen the tutor's face...not all the time but as a top and tail - good little class thank you
Yes, video was instructional and filled in gaps about colour density and hue.
It was hard to hear even with everything turned up 100%
I enjoy watching the process Cheryl uses to place and paint the flower but the sound could be higher. Difficult to hear what she is saying at times.
Excellent instruction, excellent pace. I'm curious about the "shadow mix" color. Perhaps I missed what colors made that hue. But thank you anyway!
