Blue Hydrangea - Aquamarkers

WATCH my YouTube TUTORIAL VIDEO of how to paint: Blue Petals

WATCH my YouTube TUTORIAL VIDEO of how to paint: 
Green leaf background

BUY Greeting Cards with this design from my Etsy shop:

A flower from Bodnant Gardens, drawn and painted with Letraset Aquamarkers.  I wanted to have a blurry background to make the crisp petals stand-out so I went with a wet-into-wet approach with the background leaves, just adding the water, moving it around and 'guiding' it.  The water goes where it wants to and makes the painting for you.  The scan has 'bleached' out the lighter areas a bit, so some of the more subtle lighter tones have been lost, most noticeable on the bigger petals.
BACKGROUND: Fern Green, Spring Green & Mahogany markers.
BLUE PETALS: Royal Purple & Vintage Blue markers.

BUY this design on various merchandise: REDBUBBLE

Aquamarkers on 190gsm A4 Bockingford paper.

Seen your stuff on Red Bubble. Do you work from photographs?
GeeMassamArt's avatar
Yes, only my own though :) I've got loads on file that I haven't even had time to try drawing!!

I love your works with Aquamarkers. I hope I can draw with them just as you can in the future! ^_^

I think you can get the hang of them very quickly.  Be fearless with them and use watercolour paper and remember that I've only been using them for 8 months or so! Anything is possible... :D thank you!

8 months? Wow....that's pretty fast! I'll do my best with my next work, thank you for your answer!
