Flamingo Drawing with a splash
Gather your supplies.
1
Sketch a flamingo on watercolor paper.
Trace over your sketch with a calligraphy pen. Vary thick and thin strokes.
Let it dry. Sumi ink takes a couple of hours, Ziller ink dries faster. Paint the first layer.
2
While it's still wet, tap in an orange pink around the edges.
3
Turn your work if it helps. Paint curved lines with lots of water. Use a straw to blow the paint.
4
Continue adding splash. You can help guide the splash by painting paths to start the splash.
5
Now for a splash of water. You can tap in more color to light areas as long as it's still wet.
6
And you're finished! What will you do with your flamingo drawing?
7
Maybe try another flamingo with a different painting style.
