Apple blossom in water colour


I thought I would get out my old watercolour tubes and have a go at some Apple blossom. Watercolour is not the medium of choice for me, I prefer pastel pencils as you have more control. I’ve not used water colour without instruction for over 14 years. I was quite pleased with my end result, any critiques good of bad welcome. Deb

Hi Debra! For someone who does not typically opt for watercolor, I think you did a fantastic job! I assume you worked this wet on dry for the leaves and branches with, perhaps, a little bit of wet on wet for the petals? Just curious. I love this.

I painted mainly wet to dry onto the flowers first to start off the lightest colours and when dry went back in to darken, and also lift out some of the highlights. The leaves were well, a bit hit and miss. Could have done them better. Thankyou Deb
