Chipmunk on a Sunflower Painting

Learn to Paint a Bright Sunflower!

In This Course You Will Learn:

✏️ To use comparative measuring to draw the composition.


☀️ Create multiple layers of smooth graded washes in the sky with noooo brushstroke lines!


🐿️ Work up the values and texture of fur in the Chipmunk, without loosing the highlights from the sun.


🌻 Use my signature masking fluid layering technique to build up the color and texture in the middle of the sunflower.


It's time to crack out the masking fluid to build up lots of layer in reverse!

Wondering how that works? 🤔

Give this course a try, and discover a fun new way of painting layers with watercolors.

Hi, I'm Tracy!

I have a passion for painting with watercolors, and teaching others the traditional fine art techniques that have been passed down to me.

Most importantly I want to have fun when I paint and to share that fun with those who enjoy creating art:)

I'm here to help you develop your own unique style, while learning how to draw, paint, market, and sell!

Have a question? I'm here for yah! Contact me at [email protected]

Wanna learn more about me, and how I came to be a professional artist? Check out my About Page.


Students are encouraged to use what they learned in Watercolor Painting for Beginners to combine reference sources with their imagination to put their own unique spin on their composition in this advance course!
