Are you new to painting and you are wondering how to paint a simple daisy? Let’s admit that painting your very first daisy could be a great achievement! Daisies make a great filler flower when done with a small brush. You can add them for a spark of white to a more colorful flower painting by adding the white it can make your colorful flowers pop.
Let us learn how to easily and quickly paint a simple daisy by following these tips!
- You need to apply a double load of white and gray on your brush.
- A little bit of gray, majority of paint should be the white one.
- A little bit of the gray paint will just add a little depth and striations which will give the petals a little shading or interest.
- Then you need to make a dot on your surface area to give you the center point. This makes it easier to have a center point to pull to. Lead with the white.
- Now we do our first white petal stroke.
- We will learn how to paint a simple daisy now, you can draw a light circle to keep your petals about the same size but I just fly with it much of the time and let them be wonky.
- Press on the chisel edge of your brush. Pull towards the center, adjusting pressure to how wide you wish the petal to be and lift the brush to a chisel edge as you get closer to the center to let the stroke narrow.
- You should add strokes around the center dot, some can be a bit curved to add movement.
- Then you can make the backstroke shorter and the front strokes longer to emulate depth.
- Keep adding petals until you have filled into your satisfaction.
- Less is more.
- This means that you can always add petals but taking away too many is more difficult.
- Once you have completed the circle to your satisfaction then we will add the center..
