15-Minute Sketch: Flowers That Glow

August 23, 2018

Flower painters always speak of chasing the light for it’s the light that truly makes a subject glow. Translucent petals and leaves make flowers especially prone to this type of spectacular beauty.

 



If you’d like to learn how to turn your drawings into paintings, we recommend two workshops:  

Jan Kunz’s Roses in Crystal
Kunz literally wrote the book on flowers that glow.


Ann Pember’s Vibrant Orchid
Pember is a master of light.
