Watercolor Flowers Series #4: Garden Bloom


Thanks to all of you for your patience in waiting for another in my Watercolor Flowers Series!  This one was filmed a while ago, but it’s been sitting in the queue waiting for its moment to shine!

Watercolor Flowers Series #4

This time we’re working on much looser watercolors – trying out some masking fluid, and just letting that paint flow where it wants to go! I shot this video a while ago, so I’ve had more experience with watercolor and papers since then. Enjoy the video below, or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube.

Wasn’t that fun? I do believe this is going to be a longer series than first imagined…I’m enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would when I first started.

Each time I practiced painting the same watercolor flowers, different things happened – so you can come out with all kinds of looks by just letting the water and paint mix in different ways!

One thing I’ve learned recently is to purchase a full set of a coloring medium. I gave away my set of 24 Kuretake paints 2 weeks ago, and I’m awaiting the arrival of my new 36-color set!Sandy Allnock Watercolor Flowers 4b2

And FYI, I’m cooking up some new things for my blog in the near future…I’m making friends with Dick Blick, one of my favorite suppliers of art materials; they carry tons of artists tools and paints and papers, and since our crafty stores can’t justify carrying all that, I’ll be sharing some fun things I find in the art store. And coupons. LOL. You’re welcome!


I hope if you try this technique for watercolor flowers, you’ll drop me a link in the comments – I’d love to see your interpretation!
