Ink & wash florals : stunning botanical projects in watercolor & ink

Camilla Damsbo Brix (Author)
Immerse yourself in the world of ink and wash with these dazzling floral projects that will have you falling in love with both mediums. With Camilla Damsbo Brix's expert guidance, you'll learn the fundamentals of each art form, from layering washes of color to capturing ideas in loose but evocative ink drawings. Then, you'll marry both mediums in 17 radiant compositions that highlight the immense versatilities of both art forms, as well as each flower's unique beauty. Want to capture the delicate nature of the Poppy? Start with watercolor and complement it with barely-there lines of ink. Looking to bring out the lively colors of the Iris? Make bold fineliner strokes, heightened with a touch of watercolor. Switch between pen and paint as you go for an equal fusion of both in the Sunflower and Hibiscus projects. Then bring it all together by combining different flowers into one composition, like A Dancing Bouquet of Cosmos and Daisies. These projects will expand your artistic skills, whether ink or watercolor is your medium of choice, or whether you have never picked up a pen or paintbrush before. With this gorgeous book, you'll create floral masterpieces in no time
