Gary Greene presents Painting Flowers in Colored Pencil on artistsnetwork.tv (http://www.artistsnetwork.tv). In this new video workshop you will learn to use two completely different approaches to painting beautiful, lifelike flowers. Gary begins with the basics: pencil choices, sharpening and strokework. He then demonstrates two complete start-to-finish flower paintings—a rose using solvent to create an underpainting on which to layer color; and a gloxinia on a dark surface using a burnishing technique.

In this preview from Painting Flowers in Colored Pencil, Gary shows you how an underpainting technique gives lifelike texture and vibrant color to your flower petals.
