Well behaved watercolourPosted: January 29, 2014
I just realized as I uploaded this photo that today’s card has exactly the same layout as my previous card. As the title of the post suggests my water-colouring technique for this one is very controlled and restrained. It is all inside the lines. As you may have guessed from previous posts my preference is for the wilder wayward watercolours that bleed and blend outside the lines. I still like these flowers though because the watery variation of colour can be seen the the petals where I added more colour in some places and blended with extra water for paler tones.
I began by stamping the bottom left flower then covered it with a mask I stamped and cut from masking paper. I then stamped the other two flowers and drew some leaves here and there. The flowers were stamped in Memento ink which dried fairly quickly. I used watercolour pencils and a waterbrush to add all the colour.
