Working from fresh flowers and plants, Bente introduces the techniques and principles involved in botanical painting. Using watercolour, coloured pencil and ink, Bente shows you how to gain control of a painting and apply different media to great effect.
In this video, Bente paints tulips, primroses, daffodils and lilies with the addition of helpful hints and tips along the way, tackling potential problems such as white flowers on a white background. It’s a must for all who have an interest in painting beautiful flowers.
