Practice with coneflowers

Paint simple cone flowers with watercolor

I am working on my color. The blue wash on the upper left corner makes me smile. These flowers are not in the shop. I want more contrast in the color. On the bright side I am learning to paint free style. No pencil sketch. Just painting. My color guide is helping me create lovely tones of pink and peach. Add a little orange to pink. Add a litle yellow to magenta. The blue makes me feel like these blooms were painted on a Spanish style wall. Love the vine.

Coneflowers are easy to paint and great for practice.
