How To Paint Hollyhocks

10 Amazing (and Easy!) Tutorials

Introduction

This one time, I went on a quick painting spree, where I would just paint whatever flower popped up in front of me. It just so happened that the very first flowers that I came across during that period was this beautiful vase of hollyhocks. Now, I felt a bit puzzled. On one hand, I really wanted to paint the most gorgeous bunch of hollyhocks anyone has ever seen, and on the other hand, I had to deal with the fact that I didn’t really know how I could paint them properly. So, I did what I do best, took a stroll across the internet, and began studying video tutorials on how to pain hollyhocks.

To paint hollyhocks, you need to maintain two things. The first is the structure itself. If necessary, draw the outline of the flower with a pencil, and then begin coloring. The second thing you need to do is use proper shades. Without accurate color shading, the painting will look a little less professional, and maybe even incomplete.
