How to Compose Painting from a Single Daisy Flower with Lela Stankovic – Step by Step for Beginners

Hi fellow artists 🙂

As an artist you paint what YOU see…. something which might exist in the real world… or it might not. You might paint it exactly as it is in the real world, or take artistic license and paint the subject as you see it.

In this video, I wanted to show you how to compose a painting without having a full or complete real-world reference. Your mind is an extremely powerful engine and if you give it a little fuel of imagination and a reference subject – you would be surprised what it can come up with. In this video, all I had was a simple basic flower. And that single flower combined with imagination produced a rich bouquet of flowers.

You can use a similar approach to add, to remove or to totally modify any portion of your reference in a similar way. And here I wanted to show you how to do it.

I hope you enjoy this video.

Happy painting!

  1. Simple and yet a beautiful composition was born. Yes, with the freehand drawing, I feel that we can develop a lot, and new motivation and joy can be given to the individual work.

  • How to Register & Sign In


    Option #1: If you have used "Sign in with Google" button to register the first time, you are welcome to continue using Google for future sign in also. Google does not send PADT website your password - so PADT in this case does not store any password for you.

    I would recommend using this method as the best way to register and also to sign in to PADT.


    Option #2: If after you have registered using "Sign in with Google" button - and then later you want to sign in directly - you will have to click on the "Forgot your password" link at the bottom of the login form which will send you a mail (with a link) to create a password for PADT website. You can choose a password (which can be different from your Google password), and you can use it to sign in directly in PADT website with your username/email and new password. However you will continue to have the ability to sign in with Google whenever you want.
