Watercolor Artwork

The first time I started doing this type of artwork was back when I took a class on it while at the girls’ summer camp, Rubies; I’ve been doing it ever since along with teaching other people how. Extremely beautiful and easy, this is something that I am almost always into doing.

Supplies:

Pencil and eraser

Watercolor paper

Watercolors or watercolor pencil (I use the pencils but they both work great.)

Ultra fine tip black and peach sharpie markers

  1. Begin by drawing a circle on your page, it can be just a rough circle for where you kinda want the wreath to be. Next, work on the flowers, then take a look at the pictures to get an idea of how to make them. Basically you start in the middle with a few squiggly lines and just keep working your way out drawing more and more petals layered on top of one another until you reach the size you want. Draw the leaves for the flowers, I usually draw three leaves for each flower. Now do the greenery, shape all the little leaves like rain drops, putting them directly across from each other or staggering them, whichever you prefer. Add in a bunch of little random stuff to fill in all the gaps and give it a finished look. You could include swirls, little stems with leaves, bunches of berries; this is the part where you can get creative and put in whatever you think would look best.

2. Once you’re happy with how your drawing looks, use an ultra fine tip sharpie to draw over all your pencil lines; doing this gives it a beautiful sharp look.

3. Now get out your watercolors and get ready for the good part! Paint the flowers peach. I have three different types of greenery so I painted the flowers’ leaves bright green, the leaves around the wreath a darker forest type green, and the little leaf sprigs olive green. The other little random things I painted a mulberry purple.

4. The last step is to do the writing in the center. Use an ultra fine tip black sharpie marker and a peach marker that matches the color the flowers were painted. You can come up with styles of writing that you want to do in the middle or you can copy mine off of the picture.

Remember that joy is a choice, not a circumstance.
