Make your very own large floral painting to hang in your living room! Isla will guide you through the process and will help you to complete a beautiful finished product that you will be proud to showcase in your own home. Using a minimum 24×24 canvas, you will be guided step-by-step using a reference photo provided by Isla (or your own if you have one!) to create a beautiful floral piece.
