Watercolour Study of 'Petunias in a Mason Jar'
|Start by wetting the jar an flowers. After the shine goes off the paper, drop in some light colour.|
|Once dry, paint in stems and identify where the leaves are. Start to define the focal area of the painting -the petunias that will have the most detail.|
|Negative paint to leave the lights of the jar. Be sure to simplify what you see so you don't get overwhelmed. Apply light washes of varied pinks and purples for flowers. Add dark centers. Create a suggestion of the jar sitting on something.|
