Learn how to paint loose watercolor peonies with me as I break it down into easy-to-follow steps. This is my first video that uses animated arrows to guide your strokes. 

This class is for beginners and for other artists who are looking into trying a loose style of watercolor painting.

In this class, you will learn about the following:

  • Supplies/Materials
  • How to mix a dainty pink color
  • Wet on wet technique
  • Brush strokes for the petals of the peony
  • Leaves and fillers
  • Peony bud

For the main peony flower, you will learn how to paint it in two ways:

  1.  X-mark Peony 
  2. Freeform Peony

By the end of the class, you will have learned the necessary skills to create your own single stem peony and peony bouquet.

Let's start painting! :)

Hi everyone! 

My name is Joly and I am a watercolorist based in the Philippines. I discovered painting with watercolor back in 2013. I started out as newbie and learned to paint better through making mistakes and learning from other amazing artists. I just love how we can express ourselves through painting, creating wonderful watercolor florals using our artistic interpretation. It makes each painting really unique!
