Easy Watercolours of Bluebells

Silver Birch and Bluebells
Painted in Watercolours
I promise the whole of May will not be filled with Bluebell paintings, but it is the month of these magical flowers that we love to paint.
I though I'd get a bit of practise in before next weeks course.
*Saunders Waterford High White was the paper and it was lovely to work on, I do recommend it.
* French Ultramarine and Permanent Rose mixed the perfect Bluebell colour.
*Lemon Yellow proved just right for mixes of Spring Greens along with hints of Winsor Blue. *Masking tape helped to keep the white of the paper on the Silver Birch.
This was just a small study but I think it would make a super large painting. Having a go on a smaller scale first, does give me more confidence and gives lots of ideas on techniques and colour mixing.
