Many artists dream of painting flowers that radiate so much color and warmth — that they look full of life, as they would in nature. 

And what many of these artists don’t realize is that the pastel medium provides an unmatched advantage for making that possible…

Because when you use pastel to its full potential, it allows any artist to create floral paintings that look so realistic — you might think you could lean in and smell them…

You might even think they could fool a bee or a butterfly! (We’re joking here, but you get what I mean!)

So if you’ve ever struggled with pastels…

Whether it’s being confused about which colors to choose, how to mix colors effectively, or ending up with a muddy mess instead of a masterpiece…

Then I have some exciting news for you on this page…

Keep reading to discover how master pastelist Lyn Diefenbach’s "BUILDUP" approach can help you create stunning, lifelike floral paintings! 

Once you’ve watched and learned from Lyn’s new demo, you’ll not only find that working with pastels becomes more fun, easy, and rewarding — but that a whole new world of artistic possibilities opens up for you.

And who knows? 

This could be the moment pastels become your new favorite medium!

But first, let’s take a look at how Lyn Diefenbach went from being a detail-oriented oil painter who never considered pastels — to having a life-changing “aha!” moment that set her on the path to becoming a world-renowned master pastelist.

Lyn started out as a landscape oil painter, painting every little detail she could see. 

But she got tired of each painting taking a year to paint. 

One day, she saw an article on pastel and figured she’d give it a whirl. 

She didn’t know anything about pastel. 

She didn’t believe it could achieve the same vibrancy as oils.

But that was only until she stumbled upon a new-to-her pastel paper that was pure, clean white.

That accidental discovery had such a profound effect on Lyn, she says, “It felt like an electric shock!”

She realized it was like watercolors — the white paper shining through the color, making it glow. And she quickly thought of painting flowers on this bright surface.

That was the turning point for Lyn. 

It completely changed her mind on what she could do with pastels!

Today, she’s a renowned master pastelist.

What you’re about to learn are the discoveries Lyn has made throughout her colorful journey.

You’ll learn her unique “BUILDUP” approach that’s been proven to help students create visually breathtaking art.

As you watch Lyn recreate her masterpiece All Aglow, you’ll see her expertly apply techniques and learn how she renders textures so well you can almost feel them…

…the softness of petals, the sponginess of cacti, and the sharpness of needles. 

Look at the painting below:

You can see the surface of a flower is a landscape of hills and valleys, twists and turns, textures and patterns — all masterfully held together in a kaleidoscope of color.

There’s texture, a great display of edge work, an expert application of multiple layers to build up color and achieve depth.

How did she capture both the sunlight and the glow from within the flowers — a glow so inviting and warm that it seems like it could attract the bees?

How did she make the flowers so realistic you can almost smell them?

You don’t have to wonder any longer…

…because today, you’re going to learn to paint flowers so well you’ll make viewers go “WOW!” 

They’re going to wonder how you created that magical, almost heavenly, glow on your flowers… 

…how you rendered textures so well… 

…and how you crafted such a beautiful composition.

More importantly…

You’re going to learn how to create art that stirs the soul and the imagination.

But this isn’t just about painting flowers — it’s about turning you into an artist who creates stunning art that grabs attention and moves people emotionally!

Ready for a glowing good time?

Though you can observe the techniques of any artist instantly by watching them demonstrate and by watching the videos repeatedly, please know that, though many artists offer insights that can help people overcome a lot of learning time, every artist learns at their own speed based on their own level of understanding. Painting and drawing bring great joy, though the joy may come from practicing various techniques over and over until you master them. We do not wish to indicate that you, or anyone, can skip the joy of practice and the challenges of getting better. Painting is a lifetime endeavor, and getting good does not typically happen rapidly, or instantly. Your results may vary. And please know that if at any time within 30 days you feel this video has not lived up to your expectations or its promise, we will happily refund your money.
