Professional artist and teacher Ali Hargreaves will be live at 2pm, taking part in our 30-minute challenge, with this gorgeous Rhododendron flower.

She will show you how to paint this beautiful, vibrant flower using all sorts of exciting techniques from wax resist to a splatter of Brusho. She will talk you through how to draw the flower and how to be relaxed and just go with the flow to produce a loose style of flower painting. You will learn lots of tips which can be applied to other subjects in the future.
