Painting a Textured Flower Center

"Three Brothers" Watercolor painting by Colleen Reynolds

“Three Brothers” watercolor 5″x7″

I completed this little sunflower painting some time ago, as I was preparing for a workshop on painting flowers and landscapes. I confess I like the small study better than the larger version. There is just something about sunflowers that give a lift to my spirits. And when the painting comes out as cute as this little darling, my spirits do soar.

I have excerpted the part of the painting where I paint the centers of the sunflowers. The whole painting took just over 45 minutes. I have the  complete video available on my Patreon channel, www.patreon.com/exploringwatercolorcolleenreynolds where paying subscribers will have access to both this 3-minute WHAT video, as well as the full-length video. My expected official launch of the Patreon Channel will be June 15th. I still need to populate  the channel with lots and lots of videos, both public and private, before I can call it “official.”

Supplies questions answered before you ask for this video.
Paper: 140 lb hot press watercolor paper, sized to 5.5″ x 7.5″
Paint: Pyrrol Red, Ultramarine Light, New Gamboge
Brush: #14 Round by Lowe-Cornell (replaced by Kingart 9020 Series #14)

Let’s watch the short clip, shall we?
