Course Intro Video:

Paint a dramatic, bold bouquet to brighten up any wall!

Hi there, my name is Suzanne Allard, I’m a floral painter and creativity teacher. We all have a creative spirit, sometimes it’s a bit buried under rubble of fear and negative messages we may have received in our lives. I think color and paint is a way to open that up, to clear out the rubble and uncover and let that creative spirit loose. How about setting it free so that you can create the way you were meant to?  So let’s do that while creating a stunning piece that you can hang in your home to remind yourself of how brave you are!

  • In this class, I’ll take you step by step through creating a colorful bouquet with a darker, dramatic background. This kind of piece is a show-stopper and so fun to create – you’ll be amazed at what you can do!
  • I’ll be by your side painting along with you with lots of visual coaching.
  • If you find yourself timid about using bright colors, this will stretch you out of your color comfort zone, so buckle up!
  • Join a friend or two and turn this into virtual painting party with family or friends if you so desire. Or do it by yourself. Either way, you’ll be surprised at what you create!
  • I’ve also included a digital download of the piece we create and some inspiration photos. You are free to enjoy it but not to sell the artwork.
  • Let’s have some fun and learn to relax while making something beautiful!

Packed with all the techniques and approaches in Suzanne’s work, key lessons will cover:

  • Supplies and tools
  • Inspiration for these blooms and colors
  • Deciding on orientation, composition, and colors
  • Sketching the basic composition
  • Paint layers of blooms and leaves
  • Adding a dramatic background
  • Adding the berries, stems and small leaves
  • Adding details and shading to make the piece come alive!
  • Flattening and protecting your painting for framing

Maybe you’ve been painting and would like to learn how to compose a bouquet like this, or maybe you’ve never painted. Either way, come along and be inspired and supported while you learn to create something you didn’t know you could.

Here's what my students say about this class, thank you!


"I am overwhelmed by your teaching. I did a picture similar to yours and I simply love the way you teach and demonstrate. It helped me so much. What I feared most was the background, to make it on the one hand interesting and on the other hand smooth. I simply did not know that one can create the Gouache background very early and that helps so much! Composition and colors are also quite tricky, but it worked out. It’s my first attempt to paint something that big ( I used postcards usually) and it convinced me to do that more often, to practice with Gouache and to never give up! Thank you so much. Next I will try your gardens. My very best greetings from Germany!"


"This is a very well-organized, comprehensive class for creating a lovely bouquet! Suzanne is very encouraging and has broken all aspects down into digestible sections that are easily actionable. She is very inspiring and extremely talented. I highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn more about having fun and success in the creative process."


"Love the teacher. And also the subject that she chooses. Very bright. Very happy. Suzanne inspires you to just keep at it! And she shows that messes can be made into beautiful art! Thank you! Have taken 2 of your classes, now I’ll take the other one too. And yes!!! I’m painting happy paintings thanks to you."
