Watercolour painting with Distress Watercolor Pencils

Coneflower or Echinacea

Set up with under drawing on smooth watercolour paper and pink colours mixed on my palette.

Wet on wet using the pink colours and clean water. I'm not yet at a stage where I can mix colours on a brush to achieve variations so I use different brush for each colour and mix with water. This was left to dry naturally as I didn't want the colours moved about more by drying with a heat gun.

As each layer progressed so the painting emerged ......

I finished off my painting by using black Uni-Ball pens to outline and add some squiggles for more interest.
