Wildflowers are the BEST flower to paint with watercolor because they truly are hazardous, meaning there ‘s no such thing as a mistake !

Step 1: Paint Petals

I always like to start with the flower petals, then move onto the shank and leaves. This gives me the exemption to place the flowers where I want without worrying about where the stems are ! For this one, we ‘ll be working from the exceed and sloooowly moving downwards .
I take some Quinacridone Rose and a short bit of Pyrrol Scarlet and mixed it in my pallette with lots of water. Feel loose to use any colors you ‘d like or whatever you have lying around ! Wildflowers can be any color we want !
Make small brush marks on circus tent of the page. These brush marks will be the petals. Make them just slenderly bigger as you move downwards. Your wildflowers will become wide when you continue to the bottomland !

Keep alternating them on the leave and right side, as you move polish, keep a bantam gap in the center for the bow .

Increase the size of your brush marks as you move down, while you increase the saturation of the color by adding less and less water on your brush .

Make sure to keep a lot of ashen space between the petals, and try not to overcrowd them !

You can always go second and fix the structure of your flower by adding flowers to balance out your condition. If you think the exceed of your flower could be a little thin, go back and add smaller strokes on top ! You can besides add little strokes here and there all through the flower, including some in the kernel. Do n’t forget, there are no mistakes with wildflowers !

By mixing a little bit of Ultramarine with the Quinacridone Rose ( or whatever you have lying about ), create a dark hue, and gently add the coloring material to the tips of the petals. If the petals are silent wet, enjoy watching them bleed through the petals. It is not necessary to add these strokes on all the petals, but I make certain I add them to the bigger ones !

Step 3: Begin Painting Your Leaves and Stem

Mix some Sap Green with a bantam bite of the Quinacridone Rose for the stem and leaves. like to the petals, go ahead and start painting the stalk/stem from the lead. then, paint little dots on top and as you continue down, try to make them slightly bigger .

Always make sure that the stem is n’t a unmarried square line, but small, thin lines with blank spaces in between. Try to vary the thickness of the lines and not worry about connecting all the petals to the shank. That means it gives your wildflowers a more all-natural search !

like to the petals, as you continue down, darken the greens by adding less and less water. besides, add small leaves between the flowers. With one long aristocratic stroke, paint the stem. then it ‘s time to add some leaves !

Step 4: Add Detail to the Stem

Using the same mix of green, load your brush with the color and lightly press your entire brush onto the paper to get some wide leaves, and swiftly lift them to get the pointy ends .

Make sure you do n’t plainly stack the leaves one above the other, but to give it some movement in different directions and angles. You could even try to overlap some leaves over others to make it look more natural ! And smash ! All done ! I hope you found this tutorial useful and most importantly, a bang-up manner to get your creativity going .

I hope this helps you to loosen up your strokes and makes watercolor a little less intimidating ! Because it’s one of the best ways to express yourself !
