LIVE today at 12:30pm ET: Magnolia Flower in Oils (you CAN use Acrylics too!)

Edit: Here is the finished painting, it was hard to get a good shot while the painting was still wet so I might update it in a couple of days:) Replay of the tutorial is below:) Have a great weekend!


Hi friends! I hope you can join me for a  live painting tutorial on YouTube today!

I felt like doing something a little different so I created a collage and stenciled background to do an oil painting on top of. Here is the video of the background in case you want to prepare yours the same way.

Background Video (recorded)

You can watch the live tutorial (or the replay afterwards) of the magnolia flower painting in the player below but if you want to chat with fellow painters or ask me questions live be sure to tune in here on YouTube today at 12:30pm eastern time.

  5. Used the Jerry’s code. Thanks a lot! (I’ve been eyeing a butchers tray for a while and they had a super sale on it. Who could resist? Add in some paper and other items and $49 is hit easily, lol.)

  6. blockquote, div.yahoo_quoted { margin-left: 0 !important; border-left:1px #715FFA solid !important; padding-left:1ex !important; background-color:white !important; } Hi lynsey, I following your painting tutorials and was wondering if you would consider not preparing a lesson but rather select a picture which would take 15-20 mins to paint and start right from scratch ie here is the photo , which part of it are we going to paint, how you check the tonal value snd select colours etc. I personally would find this very informative and itcertainly would help this beginner. Hope you don’t mind my asking.Take careLiz Sent from Yahoo Mail for iPad


  7. Hi Lindsay 🙂


  8. Thank you Lindsay! I have recently been interested in exploring oils and questioned whether or not I could use oils successfully over acrylic without some kind of special gesso/medium. Anyway, LOVE the painting and tutorial.

    I was super excited to find out more about your upcoming class/school as well as the new craftsy class. That is awesome news!


  9. I am more of a paper crafter but was wondering if there was a way to incorporate oil painting with cardmaking? Or is the paint too heavy? I have seen tutorials where you use watercolours in cardmaking as well as acrylics to make backgrounds for your cards. Is there a place for oil paints in cardmaking? I bought a set years ago but have decided that working on canvases isn’t for me and I am more of a cardmaker. Wondering if there’s a way to incorporate these before I get rid of them.
