Paint Tulip Leaves

Paint Tulip Leaves

I had fun making this How to Paint Tulip Leaves tutorial, mainly because I just kept pressing on until I liked my result.  That is how I paint all the time but don’t always show that in my videos.

I have a couple other posts on leaves, even one one that goes with my original How to Paint Tulips tutorial I shared a couple years ago. (can it really be that long?) I also have a post on just Leaves alone for you to refer to and I try to include leaves in each flower painting tutorial.

So why do another?  Because I show in this tutorial how you can take it a bit further and change the shape or impression of a leaf to make it look like it is curving.
Paint Tulip Leaves, easy painting lesson on painting tulip leaves in a mason jar. One stroke at a time, you can leave them flat or make them look like they are curving towards you.

I am still working on the entire video for the Paint Tulips in a Mason Jar.  I keep reviewing it and not liking the result and redoing it. I think I am getting too picky.

I need to learn to be content with my less than professional videos and just share then you can see how many times I have to fix what I do.  That might be more encouraging for many than showing the pristine retakes.

In the meantime here is the video on Painting Tulip Leaves.

I am a newbie, beginner painter... Thanks for the videos. Having a hard time with the flowers but doing better with the leaves.

I know what you mean, I hated my flowers at first but it is like learning to write, after a while you just can make that brush do what you want it to. Practice is the only thing that will get you there so just have fun with it and keep on practicing. :)
