Cherry Blossom Tutorial Part 2
Hello Friends and welcome to my Cherry Blossom watercolor tutorial part 2. If you missed part 1 please start with my blog post from yesterday. Here is what our completed painting will look like at the end of this 3 part tutorial series:
Here is what your painting will look like after completing the instructions for part 2:
LAYER TWO: ADDING DEPTH
5. Using a #6 round accent each flower center with Alizarin Crimson.
6. Then still using Alizarin Crimson add some darker spots into the folds of the petals with the touch and pull method. First paint a small drop of Alizarin Crimson in the areas you want to accent. Next clean your brush and then swipe some clear water right next to the drop. The paint will be pulled into the clear water and spread out in a gradient.
7. Use the same touch and pull method for the shadow areas of the petals with Violet. Using a slightly damp #8 round swipe Burnt Sienna and Ultra Marine Blue on the stem in the shaded areas not being hit by the sun. Make sure that you still preserve some of the highlighted areas.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope to see you back here tomorrow for the final part of my watercolor tutorial series!
