Rose watercolour picture

Well the weather’s quite terrible where I come from today, so here’s a nice little bright almost summery picture to hopefully brighten things up. This was just a little practice paint as I was mainly experimenting on trying to get the tone and shading right on the Rose.

Painted with my Sakura Koi Watercolours set and painted on A5 Derwent watercolour 140lb paper.

The reference photo came from paint my photo – http://pmp-art.com/breccabaroo/gallery/154697

Flower Doodle

Created this little flower doodle as a card today.  Always pleasing to do something nice and quick to create a unique card for someone.

I created this by drawing out the flowers, then going over it with my 0.3 Staedtler pigment liner. Then added colour with my Letraset Promarkers.  The lighter bits on the purple flower were done with a Pale Lavender Copic marker pen, which turned out to be really good at adding highlights to the petals even after I’d already coloured then in with my purple Promarker.
