Tips and Techniques-Creating Watercolour Flowers

Some of these tips and techniques I would like to share with you in the hope that we can create a “universal” classroom. Feel free to message me or leave a comment to say that you’ve had a go at some of these tips!

Watercolour Flowers:

Creating watercolour Flowers is easy – you need:

1 sheet Watercolour paper (available at the newsagent in a pad)

small paintbrush

Watercolour Paints

water

palette for mixing paints

To create these flowers:

Dip your paintbrush into the plain water and draw the shape of the flower WITH THE WATER on the sheet of watercolour paper. Fill it in with water too – the more water the better.

Now dip your paintbrush into the watercolour paint colour of your choice and get the TINIEST bit of paint on the end of your brush. Now dab your brush into the centre of the water flower – see how the colour of the paint now spreads? Put more paint in the centre of the flower if you want it to spread further, or to be a stronger colour.

Repeat the same process using other colours and soon you will have a garden full of watercolour flowers.

When the flowers are dry (should take about 1/2 hour) then you can draw over the top of them with a black Zig Pen using a rough and “sketchy” outline. Attach then to your layout with a brad or a button and you are done!
