My watercolor floral: Tulips & Berries!

My watercolor floral: Tulips & Berries! - student project

Hi all,

I will share my process and end result of painting my watercolor floral in this post. I hope you will share your work too! I would love to see it :) 

My mood board:

I searched online for images of flowers and I just loved the combination of tulips and berries. However, I felt like the colors were a bit too dark for my taste in the images, so I will probably decide to use lighter colors in my artwork.

My color mixing chart

For my color palette, I decided to go with Gummigut, Quinacridone Rose and Prussian blue. I especially love the mix of Gummigut and Prussian blue!

My initial sketches

I tried some simple shapes. I wanted to have some large and some small shapes, so I can combine them.

My watercolor floral

I decided to go for a mix of tulips and berries combined with leaves to make it a coherent piece:
