Learn to paint a Red Lily in a gold background. This painting was created for the painting classes, is a simple and charming painting for a person that is starting to paint. Is good for learning to blend colors.

If you like, you can also bring a photo of a landscape or seascape that you would like to paint together with your supplies.


Acrylics: There are many brands of acrylic paintings that I have tested but the one that I like the most is: SOHO, Urban Artistic Acrylic: Excellent paintings, sold at more reasonable price by Jerry’s Arterama. 3060 Wake Forest Road, Raleigh, NC 27609. (919) 876-6610.

Oil Paintings: You can buy them at Michael’s, ACMoore, but again the most affordable ones are at Jerry’s Arterama and their brand is LUKAS.
