Paint-a-Flower Monthly Subscription

Take a Color Break

The beauty of the Paint-a-Flower is that you’re free to color however you want. Markers, inks, paints, pencils. Use any medium your heart desires! I took two totally different approaches with my projects this time. First, I used my Artist Markers on a masked and layered design. Then, I went for a total abstract and loose watercolor.

I just love poppies as they come in so many wonderful colors and patterns. A quick Google search can give you creative coloring ideas that you can use for your project!

Wondering how I got all that depth in the flower arrangement? Let’s take a closer look at the concept of underpainting to help achieve more realistic and depth-filled shading.
