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.
