Flowers from Nature
NATURE it is so precious!

Today I will share how I painted those beautiful flowers using some of the most vibrant and pigmented colors found in “Nature”. I always like to experiment new ways to use colors. This time I wasn’t thinking to paint anything, I had no plan and no preparation it was late evening, but…when creativity strike you can’t miss the moment!
Few days ago I got some amazing “Dragon fruit” or also known as “Pitaya” it is a delicious and refreshing Tropical fruit that grows on several Cactus species and has great Health Benefits

Dragon Fruit

This fruit has beautiful colors on the outside skin, and rich magenta pigments inside or white.

I then decided that I needed a touch of yellow to combine with the Magenta and paint more flowers.
For the yellow color I used another powerful natural pigment found in nature.  I used Turmeric powder.

Turmeric it is a root spice used for cooking.  I wanted to try out Turmeric powder for painting from a long time.
The yellow color is very rich and beautiful, I mixed a dash of powder with water and I painted.

I am happy with the experiment of using natural pigments and how this little painting turned out.
If you paint I suggest you to try!

Under you see that I have drown a circle and an oval having a rounded and slightly elongated outline or shape, like that of an egg. The beak of the bird is like a little triangle. This is pretty easy to draw and the best way to start. The next is to look more closely at the photo and use the pencil to draw the right curves.

I use a Water Colour marker from winston & newton, when it is wet it will integrate and blend well whit the other colours . For me it is important that the drawing is alive, and here are some tricks that will…
