VIDEO: Watercolor and Ink Flower Drawing

Watercolor and ink flower drawing and how to add more texture. Video by Kim Dellow

How have you been getting on with your Inktober sketching? If you follow me on Instagram or you are part of my Creative Tips newsletter group then you will know that I've been doing a sketch per day and sharing as part of Inktober. I've really been doing my own thing and not following the official prompts but using it to generate sketch ideas, play with different styles and practice of course!

I have plans to work up some of my favourite sketches into other projects and I was hoping to encourage you to do the same thing. So today's video share is a process video for a watercolor and ink flower drawing that comes from my Day 18 sketch. I'm also testing out the Daniel Smith watercolor paints and if you scroll down below you can see a close up of the granulation you get with some of these watercolor paints, You can spot it in the picture above as well.

Anyway, enjoy the video and you will see what I mean about granulation once you have watched it! Oh and I share how to add the punchinella texture too!

That grainy texture in the photos is the granulation I'm going on about, you can see it really well in the Amethyst color along the bottom. Isn't it gorgeous?

Let me know how you are doing with your daily sketches and I would love to know what you will be doing with them next. Do you have any projects planned for them?
