Anzac Poppies Online Paint Along by Anna Battle

Anzac Poppies Online Paint Along

In Flanders fields the poppies blow, Between the crosses, row on row.*

* "In Flanders Fields" by John McCrae, May 1915

Poppies are beautiful symbols of hope and remembrance to me - so this painting is very special.

The blood red of the flowers and the teal background also makes for a winning combination.

I hope you love painting it!

Anzac Poppies - What you should know!

Painting them with me will give you the confidence to know you can actually paint. 
In your own home in your own time.
And you'll be learning drawing, colours and brush skills along the way.

  • This is ‘painting with a safety net’ – I will be guiding you to paint Anzac Poppies similar to mine, but perhaps in a composition choice of your own, step by step
  • My Paint Alongs are totally beginner friendly
  • Experienced artists may enjoy the insight into my technique and style and can use the information as a ‘jumping off point’ or warm up
  • There are lots of photos, videos and text so you’ll feel supported
  • While a Supplies List is included, you are encouraged to use what you have and only purchase what you can afford, if you need it
  • The Paint Along is held on a private website that only registered participants can access
  • You will have UNLIMITED ACCESS once you register –  you can create and access at any time and work at your own pace. There is no deadline or pressure to paint.
  • You do need basic computer skills (know how to login and work your way around the site)
  • A high speed internet connection would be a huge advantage due to the number of videos included, but the videos are also downloadable if you want to take her when you head "off grid"
  • Personal feedback from Anna is not available via this course, however you are invited to email photos of your work or post them to the Shiny Happy Art facebook page
