About This Class


If you're a watercolor enthusiast and florals is your favourite subject to paint, you must know that Peonies are one of the most popular flowers to get started of with. Whether you have your own style in painting them or you'd like to bring your painting Peony game a step further, this class is for you!

In this class, I will be sharing with you how I paint the Peony using watercolor in 3 different ways, using 3 different brush; a round brush, a flat brush and a chinese brush. You will explore ideal brush strokes needed to paint the petals of the Peony from the variety of brush types and apply movement of expressive brush strokes to create interesting shapes of the flower petals.

By the end of the class, you will be able to paint the Peony flower by using all of the brush types or any one brush that you feel most comfortable to start of with. Along with practice, you will be able to find your own unique styles using the techniques that are taught in this class.
