How to Draw Cannas in Pastel

Skill Level: 1 Beginner
Medium: Pastel Drawing
Subject: Flowers
Tutor: Dennis Clark
Class Length: 1 Hour 52 Minutes


Class Description

Canna flowers come in a large range of colours, anything from light pink right through to dark red. Even the leaves between the species are markedly different – from light green to purple and some have stripes in them. Because these flowers are not the easiest to paint, due to the small difference in colour and tonal range, we will only major on the shapes for this painting. Most subjects are first recognized by their shapes.

In this lesson you will learn:

1.  How to add the dark background for contrast
2.  How to recognize the shapes of the flowers and petals
3.  How to indicate the separation of the petals
4.  How to simplify the stem details
