Painting Flowers in Acrylic
Paint a stunning floral still life with ease in this FREE class! Learn how to bring color, composition and technique together to create an acrylic work of art.

Capture nature’s brilliance on canvas with guidance from expert Micah Ganske! Working from a beautifully photographed bouquet, you’ll create a monochromatic sketch using loose brushstrokes and light washes. Then, bring each flower to life by blocking in petal shapes, refining the light and dark areas of the composition, and mixing and layering colors. Plus, add luminous warmth with highlights and glazes for a heightened sense of realism. Discover essential techniques applicable to every painting, and create a fantastic floral masterpiece in the process!
