Flower-Purple Pansy Painting

Flower-Purple Pansy Painting

Learn to paint a Purple Pansy. This painting was created for the painting classes, is a simple and charming painting for a person that is starting to paint.

The Purple Pansy symbolize love for anyone who is close to your heart.


  1. Start by drawing the pink Purple Pansy.
  2. Under-painting: give a washed of acrylic Cadmium Yellow Light to the background and Dioxazine Purple to the flower. Outline flower and leaves with Dioxazine Purple. Acrylics are very good for under-painting; they create the basics colors to put the oils or acrylics in the top.
  3. Next paint with oils or acrylics in the following order: background, purple pansy and leaves.
  4. Sign your work of art.

Supply: This painting can be done in 2 media, 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 a more reasonable price by Jerry’s Arterama. 3060 Wake Forest Road, Raleigh, NC 27609.
