I received a special request during my live to paint a daisy, so that’s exactly what we did! I’ll show you how I drew a simple daisy and then added all of the vibrant watercolor paint. This is a great beginner art journal piece or watercolor art piece to hang in your home that will only take you about 30 minutes to recreate – quick and easy!
Grab a Molotow Blackliner pen and draw a simple daisy a little off-centered on your page. Make sure to add your stem too.
Next, I’m going to take my paintbrush and wet my entire background with water, carefully going around each petal.
I’ll take some dark green and dark blue watercolor paint and add dots of paint to my background, letting the water blend and mix the colors. Then, I’ll add some yellow to my flower center. Dry with a heat tool.
I’m going to add a pop of color to my flower petals. Start by adding a little bit of water to each flower petal and then drop some pink paint onto each one blending it very lightly. Dry with a heat tool.
Next, I’m going to use a liner brush and take some black acrylic paint to outline everything and add some detail lines on my flower petals. I’ll also take a small stencil brush and add some black texture around my flower center.
Then, I’ll paint on my stem and leaves with the black acrylic paint. Take a little bit of white acrylic paint and add some detail lines to your leaves. Dry with a heat tool and remove your painter’s tape.
