Spring Watercolor πŸ’ Bouquet
You will need water color paper/napkin/scissors/markers/watercolor palette/water cup with brushes/glue & scrapbook paper.
1
First, prepare your area to begin painting watery stems for your bouquet. πŸ’ Clean water is the key to vibrant & bright colors.
2
Using a flat brush, stripe areas of water, to what will be the beginning of the stems and leaves of the bouquet.
3
Next, add dots of color to the wet areas of the paper. This is called a β€œwet on wet technique.”It is fun to see what shapes they become!
4
I suggest you print a color wheel to refer to. 🎨 Colors near each on the color wheel, play together well.
5
We will paint large puddles of water next that will become the abstract shaped flowers.πŸ’
6
I added reds and orange to mine first. You can add darker layers if needed to accomplish brighter areas.
7
Look at how fun they look! You can leave this to dry on there own, or dab wet areas with a napkin. *Note that this will lighten the colors.
8
Next, we will sketch a vase shape. This can be any vase shape you want! Feel free to research shapes before hand. 🏺
9
Then, clean your brush and add clean water to it to begin pulling the blue watercolor inward & inside the vase.
10
I used green and yellow stems and watered them down to create a lighter shade.
11
When the watercolor is completely dry, use your markers to roughly sketch the shapes of stems & leaves. Leave the shapes loose and whimsy.
12
Continue using your marker & create flower petals and there centers as well. 🌸
13
Using your scissors, cut loosely around all completely dried pieces.
14
Now the fun begins!!! Start arranging your pieces by moving them around on a scrapbook paper, until you love them. ❀️
15
You can curl the edges of pieces you choose to add dimension and use glue to secure them into place.
