How to paint flowers in acrylic! This is an acrylic painting tutorial and timelapse designed to help you tackle your own floral still life paintings, using two beautiful coral charm peonies as our subject. Peonies are one of my favourite flowers to paint, and this video is designed to encourage beginners and experienced artists alike to pick up the brush! I hope you enjoy, feel free to connect with me and let me know how I can support you on your own artist’s journey! Tag me in any completed paintings that were inspired by this video so I can enjoy your artwork.

In this video, I also talk about some of the common challenges of working with acrylic paint, such as the accelerated dry time and the fact that the colours shift as they dry.
