Hi, friends! This week I was inspired by some lovely flower arrangements at a funky restaurant. I snapped a photo of one before I left because I wanted to paint it. Here is the photo I took:
And here is the painting we will paint today!
You can follow along and do what I do or you can use the photo and paint it differently. Watch the video for the real-time lesson and paint along! I recommend sketching on scrap paper and then transferring it on your good watercolor paper so you don’t have to be worried about erasing and marring the good stuff plus if you don’t like your painting you have the sketch already done and you can try again!
- Hahnemuhle Expression 140# CP watercolor paper. Also available at many fine art stores!
- M Graham Watercolors: Colors: Ultramarine, burnt sienna, sap green, permanent green light, Cad yellow light, card red light, Quin Violet
