Bohemian Flower Vases Acrylic Painting Tutorial

This may be my all time favorite series I have painted so far. These pretty little boho floral black and white vase paintings were SO FUN!! They covered all kinds of different flowers: Roses, Tulips, Lilies, Sunflowers, Daisies, Lilac and more. I loved teaching them. The colors are vibrant and cheerful. They were just a joy all around. I hope you like them too!

Video 1: Roses
All 3 paintings were taught live on YouTube so they are full length, real time lessons.

Video 2: Lilies & Tulips

 Video 3: Sunflowers & Daisies

Pop of Color Black and White Trees | Acrylic Painting Tutorial

Black and White is a huge trend in painting right now. So I thought I would do a 2 part video showing how you can make a modern black & white treescape acrylic painting on canvas. This is super easy and fun  DIY project for beginners. The materials are a large flat brush (sponge brush is ok), a sea sponge, a plastic credit card and acrylic paints in black, white and your choice of color.

Black and White Trees Video (Part 1) shows how to do the black and white trees.

Pop of Color Video (Part 2) shows how to add color to one of the trees. I show turquoise, yellow and purple in the video but you can refer to my pink cherry tree or red oak tree videos if you prefer those colors. The steps are the same. Hope you enjoy!

And as a bonus I also have a Black and White Paris Eiffel Tower with red trees acrylic painting tutorial. It will be a live stream class on July 23, 2016 at 2pm CST. The recording will be available to watch anytime after that.

Star Trek Galaxy Fan Art Acrylic Painting Tutorial

For all my fellow Trekkies...I did a really fun painting collaboration project in honor of the new Star Trek Beyond movie coming out soon. Clive Powell from Clive5Art and I decided to do some fan art acrylic painting tutorials on YouTube. I did a galaxy inside the Star Trek badge and Clive did a Starship Enterprise with planets.  Hope you enjoy them! They were a lot of fun!
