It's not secret that watercolor flowers are my absolute favorite. And one big challenge I often hear from people is mastering floral painting composition! Where should you put the different flowers and leaves and which direction should they be facing?!

In this watercolor composition tutorial, I teach you how to know where to paint what for your floral paintings. You will learn how to paint flowers like a peony, lily of the nile, and smaller filler tulips. This beginner tutorial is focused on composition for full floral pieces.

This is an excerpt from my popular Complete Beginner's Guide to Watercolor Flowers. So if you haven't watched that yet, it's a great starting place to understand shapes and techniques!
