The Hibiscus Blooms stamp set I am using today comes from the new Make Magic release from Simon Says Stamp. Check Out here what is included in the new release.
WATERCOLOUR TOP TIP – WORK IN LAYERS
TIPS & TRICKS
- Lay down a light layer of colour over the leaves and flowers.Theoretically, you could paint the whole flower as a block of light pink, but I find the way the paint dries on each individual petal does help to define the shapes even if you are painting with the same mix.
- With the second layer, mix a slightly deeper colour and start to add detail.
- Google a Hibiscus flower so that you have a better understanding of what you are painting.
- Take your time and slowly build the painting up. Mistakes are easily rectified or hidden by the next layer and so although this method of painting might take longer than a more free-flowing loose style, it us an easier method overall.
- Use coloured pencils to add more definition and detail.
