Modern floral watercolor

A modern watercolor floral to share with you today. I hope these bright flowers leave you smiling.

Happy Sunday, friends!ย  ๐Ÿ’š

 

modern watercolor floral

I love the combination of peachy pinks and green together.

My plan was to go with only watercolor this time but after a couple of washes, I realized it needed more.

So, out came the pens and the fun continued… ๐Ÿ˜‰modern watercolor floral

Some outlining and defining starts things off by waking up the big flowers. Then a few vines and little touches for fun are sprinkled throughout.

The added sketching worked well and made this piece feel more alive. I’m very happy with the result. ๐Ÿ’—

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

Painting a few cards

I have a few watercolor cards to share today. I purchased a box of Strathmore cards and decided to paint a few to give away as gifts.

Happy Thursday, friends!ย ๐Ÿ’œ

 

purple watercolor flowers painted card

For my first card, I started with some “Patty” flowers in my favorite purple #colorcrush.

I decided to not add any ink to this one. I love the softness and didn’t want to lose it.

My next card started with a fun under painting as a base for a floral sketch.

 

 

watercolor and ink botanical card

A little ink here wakes up my card and adds some fun. This pretty card will hopefully brighten someones day.

Watercolor tip:ย  I used masking tape to hold my card in place while painting and sketching. That allowed me to position my card in a comfortable place and keep it from moving around as I worked.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Thank you for following me on this creative journey.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!
