My son and daughter in-law gave me a beautiful begonia plant for Mother's Day and its gorgeous brilliant red flowers was a perfect choice for this "experiment!"
I love doodling and turning blobs into a meaningful visual picture, however, I felt this particular project was a different kind of challenge for me. I kept at it and "walked away" when the negative voice in my head got too loud! I actually pounded a second leaf to better fill in the space during the doodling process.
The piece was nearly finished and rather than add splatters as I often do with watercolor, I literally pounded additional flowers directly onto wax paper and pressed the wax paper over the piece to allow any wet areas to randomly add color! (Refer to the original pounding above to see the difference.)
The finished piece is only 5x5 but I took it to my favorite framer (Hobby Lobby in Liverpool) and am thrilled with the frame and matting. The hard part is waiting for it to be ready!
Hope you give this project a try, especially if you're looking for a new creative challenge!
Thanks for stopping by!
