Hi there, how are you?
It’s week 3 of world watercolour week.
On a nature walk at the weekend I spotted some beautiful wild sweet peas, I couldn’t get over the gorgeous colour. I drew a few sketches and took a few photos to paint from once I was home.
I’m sure I could have spent the whole week drawing and painting the small sweet pea sprig I’d brought home with me.
Day 15, sweet pea buds. (see above) This is a painting of some little buds almost but not quite open. The scanner doesn’t like this colour so it’s very pale.
Day 16, sweet pea flower and bud. The flowers were such a beautiful vivid pink when they opened.
Day 17, sweet pea flower and bud. Another in my sweet-pea series hehe, they don’t last long so I’m making the most of it while I have it.
Day 18, I decided to watch a few watercolour skillshare classes and use my class efforts as part if this challenge. See Day 19.
Day 19, eggs. Painting lots of colourful birds eggs with the help of @sharonestevensdesign skillshare class. This is a really interesting class with good instructions that you can paint along with in real time. It took a couple of days to paint all those eggs so I’m counting them as at least two days worth of painting.
Day 20, moody landscapes. Another skillshare class this time by @watercolors_by_sukruthi I painted it twice in different colours to see how it looked (paynes grey and neutral tint). The blending is not brilliant but I enjoyed the process. More practice needed me thinks.
Day 21, feathers. Three different feathers painted with the aid of another skillshare class by @sharonestevensdesign.
I’ve learned a few techniques this week that I’m sure I’ll be able to apply to my future paintings and had loads of fun painting sweet peas.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Till next time, have fun x
