Learn to paint Crape Myrtles. They are the last flowers of sprint. A pallet of colors, from white to pink to lilac and deep magenta. They feel up our yards with big delightful blooms all through summer to autumn. 

This is a simple painting for a beginner artist. You will learn the basics of color mixing, blending and texture.

Supply: This painting can be done in 2 medias, Oil Paintings or Acrylics:

Acrylics: You can buy them at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby. There are many brands of acrylic paintings that I have tested but the one that I like the most is SOHO, Urban Artistic Acrylic: Excellent paintings, sold at more reasonable price by Jerry’s Arterama. 3060 Wake Forest Road, Raleigh, NC 27609. (919) 876-6610. Also, Kaleidoscope Artist’s Value is good.
