Easy Dip Dot Watercolor Flowers Tutorial
In today’s junk journaling we are going to learn how to make beautiful watercolor flowers. I think you might be surprised at how real to life these can look with just a little practice. Watercoloring can be great fun! Watercolor paints, towel, clean water, and brush are the elements needed. I am using a number 4 brush, but size it according to the size of flowers you want to create. I’m excited about this project!
First I roll the brush in the watercolor, put three dabs (or dots) in a triangle shape on our paper, then I rinse and set brush on towel. The next step is simply to set brush in the ‘puddle,’ pull, and wiggle …rinse brush again and repeat. The second part is just putting on two more dots, place brush and wiggle again.
Now we are applying a few yellow dots on the next flower, followed by contrasting orange ones on top. Try not to touch it, and let the water color spread, and importantly follow its own course. The paint runs a bit, but that is actually good, because it looks more natural when combined with the other flowers as you will see. Now we will add some darker color dots to have important contrasting elements, as we often discuss.
Now watch the magical transformation occur! The stem comes next with a little yellow-green color. Push the brush as shown to create the leaves. As seen on the final drawing, you can highlight the stems and leaves with a dark marker to really bring it to life. Lastly we experiment with a flower on clear gesso. It seems to be working well. You of course can follow this tutorial in your altered book projects if you wish. Have fun!
