Daisy Backgrounds - Watercolour Lesson by Sian Dudley

So we're imminently approaching the launch of (this coming Monday unless last minute testing throws us a curve ball).

One of the first artists Phil approached to work with us at ArtTutor was Sian Dudley (actually, it was both Sian and her husband Rob, who are two of the country's top watercolour instructors in my opinion).

Sian and Rob have produced about 20 very comprehensive watercolour lessons for us, which we'll be releasing on ArtTutor between now and October.  I thought you might like to see a sample lesson from Sian, who is very much a 'botanical' watercolourist.

Below is part 1 of 2 from her 'Daisy Backgrounds' lesson.  I'm sure you'll agree, it's a stunning image and is actually two lessons for the price of one.

We'll add part 2 to in time for the launch on Monday, along with some other lessons from Sian and Rob.  Enjoy...

    I have now watched the clip with Sian and I love her way of painting. She has such a happy personality, and she paints so beautifully! Will there be a DVD of her to buy? and there will be some reference images or line drawings? I would like some more information when it comes to the brush size and whether it is a synthetic, mix or real hair. Kind regards Sofia
