Inspire Me Monday – Loosen Up

Happy Monday everyone! Today I have a new Power Poppy post to share with you all. I usually use the Inspire Me Monday posts to stretch my creativity and push myself to try new styles. This time I went with a loosen up theme.

I tend to paint with my watercolours in a very controlled way to accomplish a floral look full of very controlled layers, I find it very hard to just throw colours around. So that is exactly what I did this month, I used 2 quill brushes for the entire piece, and reached for a stamp I have coloured multiple times before to have a little bit of comfort, so here is this version of Sunflower Power.

I started by throwing some yellow, green and blue into the background and over the image, then I went in to start working out the stems and leaves with more layers of greens, adding pinks and purples to the petals. Then finishing off the center with a granulating brown (Hematite Violet Genuine). I am very happy with how this one came out, I want to try this one again and see how far I can push it till the piece feels over worked.

Thank you so much for stopping by,
Hugz
