A little Watercolour pink flowers

Hello,

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!

In my previous post I wrote about learning the basis with a cartridge calligraphy pen.

Once you feel comfortable with this and feel you’d like to progress further the next step would be a pointed/dip pen.

I say this is the next step because it can be quite an investment to move onto a dip pen, but it is definitely worth the leap.
