Project Description

For our class project, you will be painting your own small floral bouquet. Feel free to let your own style shine thru your painting. Remember to have fun and don’t overthink!

  1. You may start by getting inspiration from different flower arrangements. Observe how each flower complements each other on the bouquet. You may choose 2-3 main flowers to start with.
  2. Prepare your paint, paper, brush and water jar. And perhaps you may want to turn on some music too!
  3. For your main flowers, you may choose to use your favorite color first. Add some fillers and leaves to fill in the gaps.
  4. Post your class project in the gallery so that we can all see your beautiful creation. You may also post your work-in-progress photos.
  5. If you’re going to post it on instagram, use the hashtag #jolypoa_skillshare . I would love to share your project! When I was a watercolor newbie, the encouragement from the art community really helped me and boosted my confidence. I would love to see your progress!
