Fall Drawing with Loose Watercolor
Gather your tools.
1
Tape the paper to a hard surface. Use a spray bottle to wet the paper.
2
Paint a pumpkin-like shape with a stem. Let the water move the color at the edges.
3
Spray water beside the pumpkin. Paint loose corn stalks. It's okay if they blend together.
4
Spray lightly above the pumpkin. This will help it have a speckled look, like falling leaves.
5
Use the colors of falling leaves to tap color in the mist in random areas.
6
Let it dry completely. This is what it might look like.
7
Layer 2 adds more definition and uses less water. Paint a pumpkin, leave some open areas.
8
Paint a stem. It's okay if the colors touch slightly and blend. It adds to the loose look.
9
Now, paint the corn stalks, stems and floppy leaves.
10
And a little shaded ground under the pumpkin. Tap in a hint of orange to draw the colors together.
11
Let it dry completely. Sketch a few lines on the pumpkin and corn stalks to guide the ink layer.
12
Use a calligraphy pen to trace over the pencil. Use thick and thin strokes.
13
Leave it like it is or add Happy Fall for a cheerful autumn message. And you're finished!
