Using watercolour and simple brushwork, you can paint a really strong, vivid impression of these gorgeous flowers. No sketching is required, paint is applied straight on to the paper to form the background and then the foreground is bought to life by painting a few of the main flowers in a little more realistic way. Jane will guide you through this process, step-by-step.

• Jane will also be using a touch of indigo acrylic ink with added granulation medium, but this is not essential at all
