Hello Love, and welcome to my King Protea Flower Acrylic Painting Class.  The King Protea is a magnificent bloom.  It’s big, bold, unusual, and has beautiful colors and textures.  It’s one of my favorite flowers and I even had one as the centerpiece for my wedding bouquet. 

My name is Jennifer Laurel Keller.  I’m an artist and instructor with over 20 years of experience in the arts.  I’ve painted a lot of flowers over time, and what I’ve noticed is that floral painting has become very popular lately, and rightly so!  Flowers bring joy to everything around them.  But to keep your florals ahead of the rest, it’s nice to be able to paint flowers that will stand out and attract attention.  

So in this class, I  share step-by-step instructions for painting the king protea.  You’ll learn how to paint vibrant petals, the magnificent texture in the center, lively, curling leaves, and a soft background so that the flower takes center stage.

In 8 lessons, we’ll cover materials, how to make a rich underpainting so that the flower has a glowing aura of color.  We go over sketching in the composition, color mixing, brushwork, perspective, how to loosen up, and how to make the piece pop by using details, highlights, and shadows!  Every move I make is explained in the class and you can follow along at your own pace.  

This class is right for you if you want to expand your understanding of floral painting.  I’ve seen beginner and intermediate artists do really well in my classes.  The key is to have an open mind and understand that patience and practice make progress. It’s all about exploring and having fun!

Once you understand how to paint this king protea, you can incorporate your new skills into your future work with more confidence.  Are you ready?  Let’s go!
