Pretty in PinkPosted: January 27, 2014
It is my hope to draw and paint more this year so I played around in my sketch book last night then painted these three toned pink flowers today. I couldn’t tell you what kind of flowers they are but I think the little purple ones look like violets. I painted the large oval of pale pink first with a water pen picking up colour from an Inktense pencil. I then painted a smaller oval in a slightly darker pink and finally a small darker centre. When the flowers had dried a little I added the centre dots and painted the little violets and leaves. I splattered a little ink here and there before adding the sentiment and removing the painter’s tape from the edges.
