Fearless Friday, Watercolor Chrysanthemums


I did this painting for the Doodlewash June challenge

the prompt was “chrysanthemums”






My inspiration photo is by Jerry Wang on Unsplash here




I loved the blurred background and the crisp edges of the one bloom in focus

I did the background first by laying down clear water all over the paper

Then I dropped in a little green





Then pink





Then a little yellow where I wanted the focal point to be





After the paper was dry,

the bloom shapes were painted





Then stems and leaves





More leaves





Details to the main flower





Petals suggested on the other flowers






Some darks for the final touches






“Chrysanthemums” 9″ x 12″ watercolor on 140 lb. cold pressed paper


Painting fast & loose is a lot of fun!

Be Fearless!

  3. I love it when you paint! This is such fun — and a good reminder to me to be patient and let the background dry before going to town! I’m going to check out your masks. It’s not like I’m short on any, but I really love your colors!
