Flowers and the Timer
pocket sketching with kath macaulay

Always start with a daisy: it's the easiest flower. If you get it right, the viewer will think everything's good. Everything else is out of focus and simply color, even the vase. It's decorative, fun and the opposite of scientific illustration. Relax, enjoy. These look great when matted decoratively. Complete in 25 minutes or less, using a timer. Use everything you have learned: color, contrast, focal point, wax and scraping.

Episode Duration: 27 minutes and 0 seconds

Episode Number: 207
