Color inspiration – hot pink!

watercolor flower painting with bold color

My pink Azaleas just make my heart sing. That color is amazing! πŸ’—

Happy Thursday, friends! 🌸

Azaleas in hot pink

The green gold leaves look so pretty next to the bright pink.

Now on to my sketchbook for some play time.

Watercolor flowers - splashy color

Daniel Smith watercolors used:
Quinacridone Magenta
Prussian Blue
Undersea Green (just for the tiny stems)

I decided to experiment by painting my flowers using a cut up credit card. I’ve been using a plastic card on landscapes and thought I’d give it a go with flowers.

I wet part part of the paper with clean water. Just trying for playful strokes by pulling and pushing around the paint on the paper. I really wasn’t sure if this would be a success or a big fail. Color mixing happened right on the paper. At times I dipped the card into thick paint and other times a watery mix.

Using a plastic card can be unpredictable but I found it was also quite exciting. My flowers ended up rather loose and artsy. Yay, I like that.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Until next time, share a smile and shine on!
