Today I have a watercolor inspired by the flowering Dogwood tree in my yard.
Happy Thursday, friends! 💚
7 x 10 inch watercolor under painting
I started with a painting of pretty petals and leaves. No details needed at this point, that will come later with the ink sketching. The loose watercolor provides a nice base for the ink sketch.
I love that peachy pink, as I’ve said before I have a serious #colorcrush on that combination. 😉
A little sketching with a Sepia micron pen provides the needed floral detail.
I like that the fine tip Sepia doesn’t overpower this piece. I also used a white gel pen for just a few highlights here and there.
I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love.
Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!

It all started with a sketch. I enjoy sitting down with my sketchbook and playing with floral designs.
Happy Sunday friends! 😊
I decided to work on a painting inspired by my floral sketch.
My first watercolor wash, a light layer of petals and leaves.
I continued on with a few more layers of color making sure each was dry before starting the next. The key is that each layer of color added gets a little darker.
Transparent petals and leaves completed.
The flowers are much larger than in the sketch but I like that. 🌸
I had so much fun with the first painting that later in the week I gave it another try.
This painting has a few more flowers and transparent leaves. I like how the overlapping leaves create movement and interest. Pink and green together is a favorite of mine so I stayed with that combination. This second painting has a playfulness that makes me happy.
It was fun using my sketch as a guide and letting each painting take me where it wanted to go. I hope you enjoyed seeing my work and that my flowers brighten your day.
Until next time, share a smile and have a wonderful week.
Happy Painting! 💚
