Sunflowers and Butterfly was the second Guided Painting class image I painted. It was based on some of my early gouache paintings. This painting is a new version of the original 2014 painting. My daughter trialled the original instructions for me in late 2018 and we soon realised that they weren’t as clear as they should be and were full of holes. My process has come a long way since the early classes and instructions have become much clearer, cleaner and structured. It’s always good when you see how far you have come. I had chosen this image as the first Guided Painting to launch as an online downloadable class. My daughter and I ended up painting Sunflowers and Butterfly four times between us until we refined the process for you. I hope you enjoy this lovely image.

Guided painting is a wonderful introduction to painting with acrylic on canvas.
Making Guided Painting available as an on-line resource has been in the works for a couple of years. I’m so pleased I finally got this to happen. I have been aware that not everyone can make a Guided painting session. Trying to schedule dates which students can make has been the more trying aspect of running art classes. Having online classes means that you don’t have to live near Brisbane or even in Australia to enjoy one of the online Guided painting sessions. Any time zone, any country you can be creative and love the joy of painting.
All my online Guided paintings are beginner friendly and you will learn as you paint. I have “graded“ them for difficulty. I have taught all of these paintings to a “live Class". The advantage for you is that I know the pitfalls several students have encountered and guide you through them. They’re a great ‘warm-up’ exercise for experienced painters too. If you aren’t familiar with acrylic paint this is a fantastic way to get acquainted. My philosophy is to be completely transparent with my instruction so that you learn as much as possible. I want you to succeed and find the joy of creativity. It’s good for your brain, your mind and your soul.
