Fearless Friday, “Lidy’s Flowers”


Day 27, World Watercolor Month!!





I almost managed to do one watercolor each day this month,


some very small and simple and others more complicated





When I’m working on a large and detailed painting I set up my easel with the model photo on the right and my color chart on the left





Even though I’m familiar with the colors I use, I still like having the chart handy because I can visualize which colors I could mix to get the color I need





The above photo is what I used for my model,

it’s from Lidy at French Garden House





I didn’t do a sketch for this one,

I started with light washes

and large shapes to define the composition





Then I slowly add more layers and details






Here I began defining the china terrine that held the flowers






Darkening leaves





Working on foreground and oranges





Finishing flowers






Finishing with a light blue wash for the background



“Lidy’s Flowers” 9″x12″ watercolor


I hope you will visit Lidy at French Garden House, she is always creating beautiful arrangements and posts details and tips on how to arrange them

Thank you Lidy for the beautiful eye candy!

    Beautiful! I purchased a pillow last year in similar colors, and this would coordinate so well! I have it in my sunroom for summer and just love the bright colors.
