I was painting a tulip and realized I just had to create this tulip painting tutorial so you could come follow along! There is a lot you can learn from painting flowers and as I have learned recently – painting tulips in particular. They have such unique and structured shapes that make things very clear while painting them. However at the same time, there are quite a lot of subtle color and value shifts, that provide great color mixing lessons to learn from.

So, grab yourself a tulip (or any flower of your choice!:) and come paint along with me. It is spring after all! Scroll down to the bottom and leave a comment, tell me what you think about painting tulips – what are your favorite flowers to paint?

Remember to take your time, if the tulip painting video lesson is going too quickly for you while you paint along. Just press the pause button to work at your own pace and then press start again when you are ready!
