Watercolour florals

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of creating my best friends wedding table names, and thank you cards.

I created a series of water colour paintings to print on to cream card. I was so worried that I wouldn’t do the flowers justice, but I think in the end the turned out beautifully. What do you all think?

  • Tulips – severely underrated, they colours they come in are immense. They are bright and intricate int he middle. Simply stunning. Roses – the most romantic of all flowers I think and this orange and pink one is no exception.
  • My favourited flower painting is probably the poppy, it turned out so well. They way the colours blend together is just stunning. Lily – this one is my favourite flower in real life, I love how this one turned out so much that I’m in the middle of doing an orange one as well.Daisies – such a simple flower in real life but very tricky to make stand out from white paper! Daffodils – I love the bright yellow colour. This was my best friends Nans favourite flower. Bluebells – simply stunning little flowers and such a short window of bloom.
  • I really enjoyed designing these florals, and I’m very proud of how they turned out. I will be using water colours a lot more I think. They are definitely easier to clean up and set up.

    Day 10 – 30 Days of Art

    Flowers! My favourite flowers in the whole world are lilies! I love the different colours. So I thought I might draw a few different types of flowers. I obviously need to work on shading but I like the general shape of them all. While researching flowers I was so surprised at the amount of different kinds of orchids there are,and the different colours they come in! WOW!!

    Below, is the start of a portrait I’m doing of my monkeys. It’s my ‘take my time’ piece that I hope to finish. If you’ve been reading my posts then you know faces elude me. So I think this will be a great help for me to improve my skills. I think it’s really important to tackle the things you find the hardest head on. There is no point sticking your head in the sand!
