A little watercolor practice painting roses using a limited palette. Another fun exercise in Jean Haines’ new book, Atmospheric Flowers in Watercolour.
Happy Sunday, friends!
9 x 12 Reasons in Blue – Canson Watercolor sketchbook
I have a few of Jean’s books and have learned so much from them. Her books are full of gorgeous paintings, inspiration, and fun exercises. I painted these loose roses following along with her simply blue exercise.
Blue is my favorite color so I was pulled in. This exercise was a good chance to practice her technique of putting down color in a circular pattern and then using a clean damp brush to push and pull color to indicate rose petals.
It fills my heart with joy to be able to create art and share it with all of you. I encourage you to have fun and do what you love. Art is for everyone, we can all create, we are all artists!
