Step One

This week, the Design Team is showcasing the Pantone Color of the Year. It’s Classic Blue! So, I’ll be working with the Dual Brush Pens in the equivalent colors: 535 and 555.

To begin, press the brush tip of your Dual Brush Pen onto your watercolor paper. This creates a teardrop like shape. Rotate your paper slightly as you create more “petals” by pressing your brush tip down. Usually 5-6 petals should be enough.

To create a half flower, only create petals on one side. This creates half a circle.

Step Two

The next step to create easy watercolor flowers requires you to blend out the color using the Medium Water Brush. Watch this quick video below!

 

Go ahead and watercolor all the flowers you created blending out the color.

Tip: If you notice you have too much color on your Water Brush, simply wipe the excess color on a rag as you go along.

Step Three

Now, all that’s left is to add detail and character to our flowers using the MONO Drawing Pens.

Using MONO Drawing Pen 01, trace around your flowers. The wonkier the better. These do not have to be perfect. I like to trace around the organic pattern created when watercolored.

To add more detail, use MONO Drawing Pen 01 and lightly create markings in your flower to mimic petals. For the center of my flowers, I created dots using MONO Drawing Pen 04 and MONO Drawing Pen 08. I used MONO Drawing Pen 08 to draw the flower base on the half flowers.
