Tulips & Textures: In-Depth Tutorial

  • A sunny still life to make you happy! Open tulips, rustic wood grain and intricate textures- you will adore bringing this drawing to bloom! U.K. artist Janie Pirie developed this tutorial with her award-winning style and precision. But Janie is more than an incredible artist, she's an incredible instructor- she'll walk you through minutely detailed instructions for every color and every technique, every step of the way.  


    What you'll learn

    Wood Grain: Rustic wood grain that looks so real you'll worry about splinters. Janie shows you every step.

    Yellows: One of the hardest colors to shade and get just right, let Janie show you how.

    Foliage: Make your leaves every bit as realistic as these, with Janie's palette and guidance.

    Textures: So much going on in this tutorial, it's almost like taking a full drawing course. But with 41 images, you'll see every step.

    We get that! But why limit yourself to simple pictures when, with instruction, you can draw like this? Taking advantage of expert instruction is one of the best ways to improve quickly, while having fun. Janie is passionate about teaching her art and holds nothing back in these 20 pages. You can do it!

Tulips and Textures

Very good! Enjoyed it all but gave up on the burlap as it was just too detailed for me. Over all it turned out good and I learned a lot from doing it. Will be ordering another one soon.

Many of the colors used in this project, I didn’t have..... and I thought I had them all! The pattern was okay, some of the instructions were unclear to me and I don’t think the color layering in this project really worked. I ended up choosing my own colors and proceeded the way I normally would and was much happier with it. Overall, it was fun to try a project like this and it was my first. I normally take my own photos and do my own thing with them, but thought this could be a fun way to switch things up. Maybe I’m too stuck in my old ways to try someone else’s techniques.

A most helpful book.

I am a newcomer to watercolours and coloured pencils. The information is well presented and I am making some progress but need a lot more practice before I would show anything to anyone.
