I received several requests to use fall colors, so I created this fall flowers art journal page using lots of orange, red, brown, green, and gold. One of the questions I get all of the time is: Where do I start? I don’t know what to paint! My answer is always just to see what the watercolors do. I go into my demo sessions with no plan in mind and just let the colors flow!
Then, add your color to your page. I’m using lots of yellow, orange, brown, red, and green and just letting the water blend the colors together. Dry with a heat tool.
Grab your Molotow Blackliner pen or permanent marker and start sketching on some flowers and leaves. Then, I’m using a really deep purple and painting in the background.
Then, I’ll take a liner brush with some black paint to outline my flowers and add in some more detail lines. You could also use a thicker pen or marker for this.
Water down some black paint, dip a fan brush in your mixture and tape it above your page to create a splatter effect. Remove your painter’s tape and enjoy!
