Sunday Sketches: Creating Simple Watercolor Flowers




I've been continuing to push forward in the amount of children's book illustration work on my studio table and am happy to say the "Monster Adventures" and "No Matter How Small" are now finished. I'm quite excited and am looking forward to more great news/events coming from the both of these! With those two cnow behind me, I'm now focusing on finalizing the last few illustrations for the other children's books still on the table, "The Adventures of Chopper & T" and "Mia's Magical Christmas". Keep an eye out for upcoming announcements for these wonderful books!

With that said, one of the things I've implemented in my daily studio time are watercolor warm-ups, and I'm loving the results. Since I've started doing this, almost every single one of them have sold. What a blessing! Above is one of those darling warm-ups and the video of how I made it. Quite simple, actually. I simply dropped water on the paper, then paint and added black lines while the pages were still wet, creating very simple flower doodles. Something anyone can learn!

Happy Sunday Sketches! Wishing everyone a lovely week!
