Hi there, Carolyn Peeler with you today. After being away in Europe for almost a month I am back home and happy to be back in my studio getting creative. This week I wanted to share with you a pretty simple technique for watercolor flowers. These flowers take very little practice to get the hang of, but just like anything, the more you practice, the better you're going to get!
One thing that I didn't mention in the video is that while I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor paints, you can use other products with great success as well. This technique will work perfectly with other watercolors, such as the Daniel Smith line or Peerless product line. You can even do these techniques with Distress inks. When painting, I do recommend that you try using 3 complimentary colors for the flowers as that will give you some pretty variation which will help the flower look less flat. For my project I used red (which I watered down so that it looks more like a pink), orange and yellow. Some other combinations that may look great would be light blue, purple and navy, or yellow, orange and brown...honestly, there are endless color combinations that will work!
Thanks for watching this video tutorial, and please let me know if you have any questions.
