Magnolia flower in a blue vase

Magnolia flower in a blue vase - student project

I had a lot of fun painting this project! I am a totally new acrylic painter so a followed along very closely to your instructions.

I wish that the blending on my petals was better. I went over it 2x pushing and pulling the lights and darks but it still seems too cartoonish. Do you have any tips for me? I am happy with the center of the flower, the vase and the leaves. I wasn’t brave enough to paint in the cast shadow or the light coming through the blinds. Maybe next time! 


I learned a lot about color blending by watching you do color strings.

 Thanks for creating this class! Magnolia flower in a blue vase - image 1 - student project
