Step one:

Start by taping a border around your watercolor paper. Sketch out your succulent by starting at the center. Draw petals going outward around the design.

Step two:

The trick to watercoloring is to work in layers! Start with your first layer by applying Dual Brush Pen 249 onto the Blending Palette. Pick up the ink with the Water Brush and color your sketch.

Step three:

Apply Dual Brush Pen 526 to the Blending Palette. Brush it onto each petal, but don’t completely cover the green layer.

Step four:

Continue adding layers with Dual Brush Pen 993 and Dual Brush Pen 757. The colors included in the Watercolor Set were specifically chosen for how well they can blend together!

Step five:

If you left space in your sketch around the succulent, now is the time to color in your background! I chose Dual Brush Pen 526 because the blue complimented the colors of the succulent well!

Let dry and remove the washi tape.
