Laburnum Yellow Waterfall

Yellow flowers are the happiest flowers. Yellow is such a sunny colour, bringing a lift to your mood on a dull day. Who doesn’t love the happy daffodil, the cheerful buttercup and the gorgeous yellow waterfall of the laburnum tree flowers?

So today we are painting a small section of a beautiful laburnum tree in full blossom.

Using a limited palette of three yellows (lemon yellow, cadmium yellow and transparent yellow) plus cadmium orange and sap green, in this video I show you how I “loosen up” by painting the same subject multiple times. The more familiar you become with the subject, and with the way the paint and paper interact, the more you can let go and allow the paint to work its magic.

I hope you’ll give it a try!
