Foxgloves

I'm learning how to paint wet into wet watercolor flowers from a DVD set that I bought online. It is an interesting process and fun. I didn't have the exact paint colors that were suggested on the lesson, but it didn't matter. I followed along with the teacher and had a good time. This is a bit messy too, so you'll need some cleanup supplies and a washable surface to put all your painting supplies on.

This lesson also used ink on a twig to draw the outlines. I am used to using Chinese ink, but this was the first time I used a twig instead of a pen or brush. That was fun too. It makes different lines (varying thickness) that add interest to the drawing.

I like how much depth you have achieved.

Thank you. This was a fun exercise from a DVD set that I bought earlier this year.
