An easy watercolor card to paint…

Happy Monday folks! I think this is going to be a good day! We seem to be in the midst of a spring thaw and my kids all seem to be mostly over that cold that has been going around. Let’s hope they don’t catch anything new at school LOL! Here is a quick and simple watercolor card I painted last month:

DCF 1.0

You can easily recreate it, you will need a#140 watercolor card (I use Strathmore pre-folded watercolor cards) and a #8 round brush. here’s how:

  1. Wet the card front leaving a rough border around the edge dry. It should be quite wet and look shiny if you tip it to the light,
  2. Add sap green, cad yellow, mauve and purple, just loosely dab it in the areas shown. Let dry.
  3. Paint the detailed lupine in with purple and mauve paint. Add grasses with green.
  4. If you like you can splatter some of the colors you used onto the card.
