I don’t know what it is about flowers and watercolor, but they’re just such a beautiful (and even calming!) subject to paint.
Even though flowers were some of the first things I ever painted, I will admit that they be challenging at first! So I wanted to break it down for you in a basic watercolor flower lesson.

This video is a segment from my Complete Watercolor Guide for Beginners. For the full video and all the chapters, check out this playlist.
