MK Nature Design is pleased to release her Orange Flowers watercolor painting. The detail was painstaking but the painting helped soothe her mind. She is pleased with the result.
I repainted this painting because I tried a new technique with the wash. I added salt! Well the first time I added too much salt so I had to redo the painting. When you do a wash you put down a clear plastic paint over what you want to paint a different color. Well this left small thin branches and I had to use my smallest brushes. Good thing that I didn’t have too much coffee! The detail on the flowers needed my smallest brushes too. It’s worse than painting small model cars! I am resigned to this work with watercolors! The wash is not as uniform as I’d like it to be. The paper was more wet on the left than the right so the salt made crystals to the right. I was relaxed while painting and it healed my tattered soul and body. I am exercising more and stretching. My body is complaining so bending over my work was a bit difficult! In the painting I used orange flowers because they are a complimentary color to the blue. In addition they were darker than planned because the background wash was so pale. I still have to learn how to do proper dark washes. It takes courage and patience. My camera made the blue and purple wash darker. Not sure why. I’ll have to figure that out. I painted flowers again because people liked my previous ones. Please tell me what you like and I will try to paint more of it.
As usual this Orange Flowers watercolor is available for purchase for $125 CAN unframed and $225 CAN framed. I have added $25 for shipping. I have no idea how much shipping will cost. I accept credit cards and Paypal as payment. Please contact me at email@example.com. Enjoy!
