Step by step tutorial to paint a Botanical Watercolor of a Doll’s Eye Plant
Total Time: 20 minutes
Start by typing in your plants name and searching for images on Google. I searched for “Doll’s eye plant” and then sketched out the shape using a light pencil
Using your brush pen or watercolors, start painting in the details. I like to start with the focal point- and here the red stalk is the main attraction.
Using a water brush or paint brush of choice, paint over your marker lines to soften them and create the watercolor look and feel. Don’t add too much at this stage, as we want this to dry quickly.
Add more details, in this case a colorful background using more brush pen colors.
Quickly paint with water to create the watercolor effect.
Using a fine tip black pen, add in the final details to the watercolor illustration!
And that’s our completed Botanical Watercolor! I love painting plants and this one turned out super cute!
