Watercolour Blossoms

watercolour blossoms 1

Hi there, how are you?

This week I have been using the watercolour paper again. I had some photos of pale pink blossom. I was going to try negative painting again but ended up using masking fluid.

I masked out the whole flowers leaves and buds using a colour shaper and put in the background.

I masked the stamens this time using a cocktail stick to get a finer line and painted in the shadows.

On the whole it turned out ok

Thanks for stopping by. Till next time, have fun x
