Flower Painting in the Wild

Follow James Gurney as he creates five plein-air paintings of flowers outdoors in their natural setting. Each episode looks at a different kind of flower: cleome, daylily, peony, garden rose, and wild rose.

The video covers every stage of the painting process, along with the list of colors, the palette mixtures, and the view of the subject as it moves and changes.

Gurney uses gouache and casein, which are fast-drying, opaque, water-based media, ideal for floral studies. The painting insights are universal and will benefit oil and acrylic painters as well. Gurney shares valuable insights into brushes, underpainting colors, and painting tips that will help you capture any complex subject.
