Hi everyone! It's been a while since I last posted here in my blog... those who follow me would know that I am mainly a mixed media person, but recently I have been teaching adult coloring and have now been working with watercolour... which I absolutely love. I have been asked about my process and so I decided to write this post..
Here is a recent piece I finished. I started with freehand florals and abstract florals which I find very relaxing since it is very free and you have absolutely no idea how the final outcome will look like :) Recently though I am more into floral works with more details...
here is a close-up..
As for my process, I would look for inspiration everywhere... most often times - the internet. I don't have access to a lot of fresh blooms here so I look for photographs that inspire me...
here is the photograph I saw at the internet (wish I could find the name of the photographer) and drew inspiration from the florals and the colors of the bouquet.
I would start with a very light sketch and will slowly add the colors...
As for brushes... my favorite now are my Escoda Reserva Brushes 6 and 4. I work with small brushes so I can get more detail. For fine lines, I either use a liner or a detailer brush.... As for paper, I mainly use Canson Montval or Hahnemuhle Aquarelle. The paint I used here is Sennelier Pans plus I added some Nicker White Gouache to add some highlights at the centre of the flowers.
I do teach simpler watercolor work and for those interested, my next one will be on Sunday, Jan 31, at Fully Booked BGC. You can send me a message at 0917-8283308 or you can check the workshop sign-up link at the upper left portion of this blog.
Enjoy the rest of the week everyone!
