Blooming Cherry Blossoms Painting with Acrylic Gels
Each year I like to celebrate spring by teaching students how to paint cherry blossoms. This painting can easily be created with a variety of color schemes and using the acrylic gel medium to create movement in the blossoms is challenging but the results are rewarding.
