Welcome to my Studio

DVD The Daffodil


Feel as if you are having your own private lesson and enjoy learning how to paint these spring flowers.

Follow along step-by-step as we simplify a complicated reference photo into a stunning painting that is more powerful and dramatic. Learn to have a better understanding of the water to color blend and how the type and size of the brush makes the difference to your success.

Learn how to keep the shadows clean and transparent when painting over the yellow orange center of the daffodil without the colors turing into mud.

Explore how different backgrounds can change the entire feeling of a painting and the emotional response of the viewer. Sketch is available at www.birgitoconnor.com
