Learn To Let Your Paint Brush Flow in This Freeing Abstract Floral Art Class

Abstract Floral Painting by Nitika Ale

There are many ways to paint flowers. One of the most common methods is to depict them as lifelike blooms, but you might try something a bit different—imagining them as abstract forms. This can mean a variety of styles, and it’s daunting to know where to begin. Let artist Nitika Ale guide you in her class titled Dream Your Own Abstract Acrylic Floral Paintings on My Modern Met Academy. In it, she shares expressive techniques you can use to create bouquets of flowers on canvas.

In a little over an hour, Ale will show you how to paint the beauty of flowers, from the first stroke to the finishing touches. You’ll begin by finding inspiration—looking on places like Pinterest and Unsplash—to discover gorgeous photos of blooms. Ale will then go over painting highlights and shadows on flowers and creating a color palette that works for you. She’ll then talk techniques (including one that uses a spray bottle) before starting on the finished piece. Watch Ale work and get a sense of how she crafts a final result that feels intuitive and expressive, all while being approachable to you.

“I created this course to tap into that essential, free-flowing energy that resides in all kinds of art, so anybody can attempt these abstract florals,” Ale shares. “What I hope students would take away from this course, though, aren't just the specifics of creating abstract florals but also a glimpse into the more comprehensive workings of intuition and expression that goes beyond the strictures of formal rules and techniques.”
