A Wild Sunflower #WorldWatercolorGroup

The Season is changing and so the colors in nature we are getting close to the Autumnal equinox  2016, which would be on September 22.
The Fall season will bring us new enjoyable things of different kinds during the transition from Summer to Winter. Here in California I wont feel much that transition which I would love it!
Yesterday I was inspired to paint a Sunflower thinking to the beautiful nature in the wilderness. I wanted to paint in autumnal colors and add some character to the composition.
I painted the sunflower directly with the watercolors without trace it with pencil before. I loved letting the water flow and blend with the colors. This time I also wanted to create a different effect leaving some of the leafs in white and just outline them with the black ink pen, the white leafs are the only thing that I traced in pencil I really like how it turned out and I hope that you do too let me know your impressions! ❤


Details about my
doodlewash:
 watercolor outlined with black and blue ink pen. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle 12 demi-godets half-pans travel metal box  and Pigma Micron Black ink #01 and a Blue Pentel ink pen. Painted over a cold press 140 lb watercolor paper pad size 7.5 x 9 inches!

    1. Awww Jodi that’s a wonderful compliment! Thank you so happy that you like my sunflower! Yes I painted straight on the paper and I outlined the sunflower with the black ink pen when dry. I left the paper white for the unpainted leafs that I outlined with the black ink pen. ❤

    2. Awww Jodi I am so happy that you like my sunflower! Yes I painted straight on paper without a pencil sketch. Then when was dry I outlined with the black ink Micron pen! I left the white paper whenever I wanted to have the white and I just outlined some not painted leafs with the black pen! ❤
