Today I have a watercolor bouquet to share with you.
Happy Sunday, friends! 💚
I decided to limit my color palette to four colors. Then I mixed up a few more shades with those colors.
I started out painting a few big flowers and then developed the rest of the painting around them. I just love how the little buds and leaves surround the bigger flowers.
The muddy patch in the middle needed some attention so I set the painting aside for a while to think about it. About a month later I decided to go back in and add some ink.
I pulled out my micron pens (Sepia 01 & 005) and started in with a few leaves and some detail in the center of the big flowers.
The simple ink lines on the vase worked out well. I like how it cleaned up the edges and added a little more weight to the bottom of the painting.
More detail and leaves were added on the last round. I decided to call it done at this point before completely overworking it. 😉
Colors used: Daniel Smith Yellow Ochre, Pyrrol Scarlet, Indigo, and Sap Green. The additional color combinations mixed are on the right side.I really like the lighter shades of green and peach.
I think the ink detail was the added touch this painting really needed.
I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Until next time, share a smile and shine on!
