Pink Lilies in Watercolor

Pink Lilies in Watercolor

The gorgeous gold tone on the flower buds and stems is green gold by Winsor Newton–one of my favorite colors. It looks fabulous paired with the pink and coral tones in the flowers. I painted the veins on the leaves with white acrylic ink and a Number 1 round paint brush. This painting is based on a tutorial in Fiona Peart’s book, “Vibrant Flowers in Watercolor.” It’s a great book for beginning–or seasoned–watercolorists. Watercolors and acrylic ink on cold pressed Acquarello Artistico paper by Fabriano.

  1. These are beautiful. There’s a certain simplicity to the piece that highlights the colors and shapes. Good work!

      • Nope. Well….I did post a few (three) attempts at watercolours…I think it was the Being Arty Farty August edition, but the one I mentioned in the comment I made will be up in November 🙂 I’ve got a few ideas going on in my head about using the acrylic paints and other media …so thought I’d do a few then post them up together 🙂
