|Printable How To Paint Flowers in a Vase Worksheet|
Trace the outline of the project onto some 140 lb watercolor paper. If the watercolor paper is too thick to see through then hold it against a window with daylight shining through then you should be able to trace it.
Start with the background. Use a light blue with a large brush and try to keep it smooth. Use a small brush to get around the flower and vase.
The table is brown so use a large brush to cover the area of the table.
ADD DEPTH TO THE BACKGROUND
In the lower area add a little darker blue, or violet.
SHADOW ON THE TABLE.
Mix a little lavender with the light brown and put a little around the base of the vase on the shadow side.
FIRST STEP VASE
Use the same colors at the background and the table but use them lighter and watery to fill in the vase. Do not paint the entire vase leave some areas white
FIRST STEP FLOWERS
Cone flowers are a beautiful red/orange color. Start with light colors by using a lot of water. Use a small brush and paint the flower petals red, and the center is an orange.
Paint the stem a light green.
LET IT DRY
After this step dries add detail with a small brush. Do not use too much water. Mix lavender and red and with the small brush draw details by using the very tip of the brush. Draw the shadows and lines in the petals, and where the petals connect to the flower.
Use brown to add a dark center to the center of the flower and add a dark side to the center. Draw a green/brown line on the shadow side of the stems.
Use a watery black or dark blue and give the vase some shadows around the edge and on the shadow side.
