We have bloomed lush peonies in the flower bed! And it's a good pretext to create :)
To make a still life with watercolours, you need:
- watercolour paper 20x20
- №1, №3, №5 natural brushes
- pencil, eraser
Build the composition.
Start working. Try colours on the palette before applying them on the painting:
Use gentle shades and pick water in the brush:
Try to transfer colours from real life to paper, be very attentive and careful, there can't be the same colour in point 1 and point 2 — like in real life.
Add warm shades. Shades are warm, and parts under the midday sunlight are cold.
Add colour intensity with the second layer:
To add shades in the heart, go back to the middle and apply a few broad strokes in this direction:
Do the same with the leaves:
Emphasise the shadows:
And proceed to the background. The ticks mark places with intense greenery in the background, they're rather dark but shouldn't varnish the peonies' foliage:
Thus, the background around the flower shouldn't make it escape, it's light green here:
All is done!
Friends, thank you for your attention!
