Texas Wildflower Watercolor Painting - Indian Blanket Flower

See how I paint this Indian Blanket Wildflower in the video below. This watercolor is from my Texas Wildflower Watercolor Series which includes Bluebonnets, Evening Primrose, Indian Paintbrush, Crimson Clover and a few more to complete the series of seven paintings. All these watercolors are available from my online art store. 

 

 

Prep for painting

In order to prepare for painting I need content. Because I don't want to infringe on any copywrites, all the content I use for my paintings is from images I collect using my camera and sometimes my sketch pad.

After I collect my photos, I combine the different images into one composition and do a pencil drawing. Once I like the composition I am ready to paint.

Note: You will see a flash of a photo once in a while in the video as I pick a color from the photo. That's because this is a digital painting on my iPad with Procreate.

Planning and choosing the right mat for your art is extremely important. Don't skimp on the matting or the framing if you really love the art and want to display it in its finest light. Not only can matting preserve the artwork but it can also give your investment a very long life.
