Brandy's Freehand Hibiscus Watercolor Art
Brandy decided to use her creative talent to freehand paint a scene for the front of one of her Mother's Day cards. I am so pleased to share this with you. The background was washed onto a piece of Arches watercolor paper using Distress inks. Then, Brandy used a pencil to sketch the image onto the paper using a photo as inspiration. The image was then colored with a watercolor brush and her Mission Gold watercolor paints. Notice the paint splatters and the use of the white opaque pen to add dimension and detail to the painting.
Awe and inspiration - these are the two words I'd select to begin to desribe my best friend and the impact of this work of art. I am sure this card stunned in person and the receipient was also awestruck and inspired. Beautiful.
I'm linking this card up with the following challenges:
