Project# 12 Water colour flowers

Wednesday, 26 March 2008 by Irene Hoofs

..this project is painting water colours in the wet on wet method to create loose images of flowers

What you will need:
*8 x 10 in. water colour paper
*water colours, brushes and cup for water
*one bamboo skewer
*black India ink
*hair dryer (optional)
step one:
..take a clean brush and dip in the water and wet the entire surface of the paper
step two:
..take different colours of the water colour and dab small amounts of the colour to allow the paint to bleed on the surface.  Proceed with this step till you get the desired effect.
step three:
..take the hair dryer and dry the entire surface – the surface can be a bit damp, but not wet
step four:
..take the bamboo skewer and draw lines on the surface creating the outlines of the flowers
you can also blow dry this surface when you are done drawing
