flower painting tutorials , saturated with religious symbolism, were created by artists as early as the 13th century but by the time the early renaissance painters were reaching their artistic peak, symbolism made way for sheer appreciation of floral bouquets as worthy still life subjects.
The 16th century was characterised by the exploration of the new world and the associated fascination with a seemingly boundless collection of new and unique natural varieties. Flowers, together with all the other intriguing species, were carefully recorded as scientific specimens, with very little emotive collaboration. It was a century later that flower painting tutorials, created out of oils, became a major trend where sheer aesthetics outweighed the earlier religious or scientific prescriptions on creativity.
