Watercolor and ink florals

I recently took a watercolor and ink class on SkillShare by Yasmina Creates. The botanical doodling class was so much fun, I couldn’t wait to give it a try.

Happy Sunday, friends! 😊

I started with a loose watercolor underpainting. I painted many different flower and leaf shapes making sure to leave a lot of white space.

Materials used:

Canson watercolor paper 140# (a smooth paper surface)
Daniel Smith watercolors
Micron pens, various sizes

When my painting dried, I doodled flowers and leaves all over it with my micron pens.

I like this method of doodling on top of watercolor, it’s so simple and fun!

I feel free to let loose and play.

When it’s the other way around, doodle first then add watercolor, I think I tighten up. I have a harder time painting outside the lines. It feels better when I draw outside the paint. 😁 Maybe with more time and experience that will change.

I really like how this one turned out. The roses make me so happy. πŸŒΈπŸ’—
