Prep your art piece by taping off the edges of your page with painter’s tape. Then, mist your watercolor paint palette with water. 

I am using pinks, reds, and purples to paint large petals. Also, paint a yellow flower center. You want your petals to be a little offset to the left. You want this to be bold and beautiful! Then, take some green and blue to paint your background areas. Dry with a heat tool.

Next, I am going to take a black Posca Pen and outline my flower petals and flower center with thick lines. Then, I’ll take a Molotow Blackliner pen and doodle some swirls and designs onto my petals.

adding detail lines

I’ll take a liner brush and Decoart Extreme Sheen:  24K Gold paint to add some more detail lines. I’ll outline my petals and flower center with a painted gold line. 

Finally, I’ll add some gold splatter! Take a fan brush, water it down, and dip it in your gold paint. Then, tape your brush above your page to create some splatters. Dry with a heat tool. Remove your painter’s tape and enjoy!
