There are many ways to paint flowers. One of the most common methods is to depict them as lifelike blooms, but you might try something a bit different—imagining them as abstract forms.
Want to try it out? Let artist Nitika Alé guide you in her class titled Dream Your Own Abstract Acrylic Floral Paintings on My Modern Met Academy. In it, she shares expressive techniques you can use to create bouquets of flowers on canvas.
In a little over an hour, Alé will show you how to paint the beauty of flowers, from the first stroke to the finishing touches. You’ll begin by finding inspiration—looking on places like Pinterest and Unsplash—to discover gorgeous photos of blooms. Alé will then go over painting highlights and shadows on flowers and creating a color palette that works for you. Watch Ale work and get a sense of how she crafts a final result that feels intuitive and expressive, all while being approachable to you.
