Floral Swirls watercolor and ink

I have a layered watercolor and ink painting to share today.

Happy Sunday, Happy Easter! 💚

For the first layer, I started by painting a number of circles in different colors.

The pastel colors kind of remind me of Easter eggs. 🐰🐣

The second layer is where it starts to get a little wild with the addition of  watercolor swirls and stripes. I decided to experiment a little more with this piece.

At this point it looks like a floral is starting to emerge.

Continuing with the floral theme, the final layer is a fun botanical sketch. I’m often surprised how fast the sketching layer goes. I believe this 11 x 15 inch sketch took about 30 to 45 minutes. As long as I don’t overthink things and just go with the flow, it usually comes together rather quickly.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!
