This is something I have been wanting to try for a while, especially painting loose watercolour flowers.
I used the wet on wet technique which is where you just outline the flower with a wet brush and then add the watercolour. I really like the technique. It is so much easier than trying to paint every leaf or petal in detail and you can get really quick results.
The inclusion of the real pink carnations in the photo is merely coincidental, they were the only pink flowers I had in my garden. My flowers are meant to be just an impression of a flower, any flower.
I found it easier to start with a very pale colour and slowly add darker colour a little bit at a time, creating light and shade to my flowers.
I like the freedom this technique offers, I want to do more. I will do more!
See you soon x
