This downloadable class gives you step-by-step instructions on how to create this lovely painting.

Guided painting is a wonderful introduction to painting with acrylic on canvas.

 I love hydrangeas, they are such unlikely flowers. One of the first drawing assignments I ever did at art college was a pencil and wash drawing of a dead hydrangea head, carefully rescued from an English autumnal garden. I was so surprised I could grow them in Queensland, they grow in a south-facing bed and flourish.

"Hydrangeas” first ran in May 2014 and was my third class at The Art Train. It proved to be a massive learning curve for this fledging style of class. I have learnt so much since the early step by step classes and you get all the benefits of that knowledge. I have been able to iron out all the problems my " live" class encountered.

Student ability rating: tricky


Making Guided Painting available as an on-line resource has been in the works for a couple of years. I’m so pleased I finally got this to happen. I have been aware that not everyone can make a Guided painting session. Trying to schedule dates that students can make has been the more trying aspect of running art classes. Having online classes means that you don’t have to live near Brisbane or even in Australia to enjoy one of the online Guided painting sessions. Any time zone, any country you can be creative and love the joy of painting.

All my online Guided paintings are beginner friendly and you will learn as you paint. I have “graded“ them for difficulty. I have taught all of these paintings to a “live Class". The advantage for you is that I know the pitfalls several students have encountered and guide you through them. They’re a great ‘warm-up’ exercise for experienced painters too. If you aren’t familiar with acrylic paint this is a fantastic way to get acquainted. My philosophy is to be completely transparent with my instruction so that you learn as much as possible. I want you to succeed and find the joy of creativity. It’s good for your brain, your mind, and your soul.

Online Guided painting is ideal if you...

You have done my live studio Guided Painting and are now so keen you can't wait for the next one. The dates just never work out for you, or you live on another continent.
