Flower Fun

I had a little fun painting some flowers for my watercolour sketchbook….

THE BLUE FLOWER

The watercolour above¬†is not any particular kind of flower – it just came straight out of my imagination…

I used Phthalo Blue for the majority of it and just added a few tiny dots of Permanent Rose. My mum fell in love with my bright blue flower so I’m going to find a nice frame for it and give it to her…

LAVENDER WATERCOLOUR SKETCH

Fast and loose washes of colour. For the flowers I used Phthalo blue mixed with Permanent Rose for the mauve colour and I used Phthalo Blue mixed with Yellow Ochre for the stems and leaves.

After I painted this I asked my mum (who was with me at the time) if she could tell what they are…¬†straight away she replied “lavender!”, so I’m taking that as a positive… !

I had great fun doing these and I am definitely going to do some more… !
