I visited our local Farmer’s Market the other day and bought myself this fall bouquet of flowers:
A real bargain at $5.00! I loved the colors so decided to try to paint it in watercolors.
I started with a quick sketch in charcoal to get a feel of the shapes:
Next, I sketched loosely with a black Micron pen on 140 lb cold press paper:
I added my first layer of watercolor which started to make it sing:
And completed it with one more layer to add a little more shading:
I normally would not take on this challenge of painting such complicated flowers but thanks to ALL of you for your encouragement, I decided to give it a go – so these flowers are for you, my FRIENDS!
Happy Friday! 🙂
