Tulips by Frieske is a lesson that Ginger painted during a Live YouTube show on a 9×12 canvas.
Tulips are perfect flowers to paint in a glass vase with lots of green leaves below the waterline. This beginner step-by-step tutorial is part of our paint flowers in a glass vase series.

Wanda Spratt – February Student of the Month
Wanda has been with us since 2016 and she has really made some serious progress in her painting ability. In recent months, Wanda has really stepped up the plate and been painting some “museum” quality artwork. We always look forward to seeing what she is working on and see does take advantage of the Personal Art Coaching. Here's what she had to say about the PACs…
“I sent this painting in for a PAC with a few color and shape changes on the front rocks and dress contrasts. Thank you Ginger for your wonderful critique and Jon for your amazing camera work on this bigger canvas tutorial.”
“I love this new PAC tool. It's so easy and makes it feel like I have a direct communication line with Ginger. Ginger and Jon are making technology in the club wonderful.”
Congratulations to Wanda Spratt – Student of the month for February 2022!
