Today's piece is in three parts because I wanted to show the evolution of a simple 5x7 watercolor (Strathmore) and my thoughts on each phase. I call these "blob" flowers because they start out by using water only to "paint" a random flower shape and then drop in watercolor. The water blob dictates the flower shape.
The first photo shows the five "blobs" of random flower shapes in various positions using a (#12 Wonder Forest) round brush. I dropped in light to dark paint (Kuretaki Gansai Tambi) and (maybe) overworked them a little bit while they were still wet. It's hard to wait for layers to dry sometimes! Next, I lightly painted in the stems and leaves with a (#8 Wonder Forest) smaller round brush.
