Are you ready for loose watercolor florals? I’m back with my second project for The Hedgehog Hollow & Alex Syberia Designs August 2019 Kit.
If you’d like to see my first project using colored pencils on dark cardstock, click here.
Watch the video for details on how I watercolored these gorgeous florals by Alex Syberia.
Loose Watercolor Florals
One of my recent goals was to watercolor without adding additional detail and contrast with color pencils. Frequently, I watercolor with ink pads in a very controlled manner.
So, I switched things up and tried loose watercolor with Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set. The muted tones and opaque quality of these paints enhance the beauty of these lovely florals!
Use watercolors that you have on hand. The popular Kuratake Gansai Tambi watercolor pans have a similar opaque quality as does gauche.
For this project I’ve used Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set in Coral Berry, Fresh Lemon, Pink Diamond, Cotton Candy, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, and Industrial Diamond.
If you’d like to save this project for later or share it, here’s a great pic for your Pinterest board.
I hope you enjoyed these loose watercolor florals and feel inspired to give it a go. Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time, Breathe · Ink · Inspire.
