Chionodoxa (watercolor pencils)
Looking through photographs of flowers, I thought about what kind of art material would be useful for this or that flower.
Chionodoxa is one of the charming spring primroses.
I once drew it in digital
Now I want to draw it using traditional materials
I decided that watercolor pencils would be the best way to depict these flowers.
Sketching flowers with a medium tone pencil
Sketch of green grass
I start to pick up background colors with different shades of green
I continue to fill the background with color, using dark tones, not only greens, but also browns and dark purples to create depth of space.
Now the time about drawing a flowers!
They should contrast with the darkness and greenery in the background.
For their image, I left a few light pink and lilac tones.
When the drawing is ready, I start washing with water.
This must be done very carefully, without mixing colors.
I blur the flowers from the middle to the edges of the petals and wash the brush each time.
I blur the grass in the direction of its growth, and the rest of the background - according to the drawing
When the paper dries, the drawing looks like this.
Bright pink flowers that look like stars on a dark background
Have a nice spring day to all!
