snowdrops in watercolour


Snowdrops - watercolour painting

A very iconic symbol of the first signs of spring - snowdrops! They're so delicate and pure and super lovely to paint.

In this lesson we also play with creating a bokeh effect - those circle highlights that create some interest in our soft green background. These are wonderfully addictive to create and I dare you not to do too many and overdo it ;-)

Happy painting!

frangipanis in watercolour


Watercolour painting of Frangipani flowers

There's something so incredibly exotic about frangipanis. Maybe it's because they conjure up images of Hawaii and garlands of tropical flowers. But then there's also how fragile and pure they look, and their incredible scent.

Everyday of my visit to my parents recently I would visit this frangipani tree and breathe in the scent. It was so lovely. I'm really glad I took the time to paint them too.

You can paint these too! I took a number of photos of each step in painting these and the full step by step with detailed instructions is on Patreon and Renee's Studio.

Happy painting!
