How to Paint a Pansy in Acrylics step by step, stroke by stroke for beginners.

Back Petals

Double load your brush in your two colors.
The back petals are done in a scallop stroke, the next strokes will overlap these. I started with the darker blue to the outside of the stroke and the lighter on the inside.

Side Petals

Double load your brush and paint two more scallop petals. Notice how the lighter blue is now on the outside and the darker is on the inside. This way the petals contrast with back petals.

Bottom Petal

The bottom petal is really two petals scallop strokes melded together into one, darker blue to the outside. You can do two separate scallop strokes to create the bottom petal, whichever is easy for you.


Add the center dot. For this one I used white. I have used green or even black but this time I wanted it to be white.
You can dot it in with the tail end of your brush, a stylus or a liner brush.

Paint Pansy Leaves

I wanted the center to dry a bit before adding more details. So I go on to something else while it dries.

More Pansy Details

With the liner brush I add an upside down V over the white dot with a simple line stroke.

Using a 1/2 inch flat brush and Classic French Gray paint the handlebars of the bicycle. The brush size fits just about perfectly the width of the design.
