Here’s a little water colour flower painting of mine.
I created this using Pink Ecoline water colour ink for the flowers and black for the flower centres.
The light coloured flower petals around the background were created using the water I had been cleaning my brush in 😁
The pink ink had made the water a pink wash and so I used a little water to create the background petals. 😄
The paper used is cold pressed Watercolour paper, in white.
I enjoyed doing this piece as I did the flowers free hand and enjoyed playing with the ink and water to create depth to the petals.
Thank you for reading and Happy Crafting!
I’ve been doing a bit of painting practice this week, so thought I would share my ‘Week of Watercolour’ 😁 👩🏻🎨
I recently made a birthday card for a friend who had commissioned me to make a 60th birthday card.
As well as the Watercolour painting of a glass of red wine I decided to hand letter a sentiment direct onto the card.
To achieve the look I wanted I blended 2 different colours to get a gradient effect.
