Painting your own Christmas card can be a lot of fun, so long as it turns out well!

So in this week’s tip video I wanted to inspire you to have a go by showing you my process for painting this most Christmassy of plants, the poinsettia!
Hint: don’t get tempted to paint those veins too early! 

Have you painted a poinsettia, or made your own Christmas cards before? If so, how did they go? I’d love to hear.

Hope this encourages you to get your paints out this weekend!

    I have tried to sign up for the poinsettia painting class with no luck. I joined the beginners class offered for $20… Canadian on how to paint a flower through Craftsty with you instructing. How do I sign up for the 6months or year online classes. When I get to the sight and add my info it says I can’t register because someone already has my username which of course is me. Help please.

    Anna – I watch for your tutorials eagerly. I love your work – your book – and your encouragement. This poinsettia is amazing – I’m passing ‘you’ around to my friends. Happy Friday!

    Hi Anna….I could not find the drawing for the poinsettia. Could you please send me the link.

    You have one of the best sites for watercolors.

    • Hi Marie, you’ll need to be a member of Anna’s online School to have access to all of the drawings and full length tutorials including the Poinsettia, I’m afraid. You can find out more about her School on this page here. Hope this helps.
