Plastic Flowers for Spring

Watercolour drawing of plastic flowers

Direct water colour, and water colour pencils on cartridge paper.

Colour and new media, I said I wouldn’t do that…

Having told myself I would just concentrate on drawing and not worry about colour for a while I found myself doing the opposite… Starting with direct water colour (no pencil guides) and then the next day worked into it using water colour pencils. The flower on the left is definately a little squashed in order to keep it on the page and I was a little annoyed that the one on the right needed to hop over to the next page of my sketch book, note to self start smaller next time…
