Gloria J Zucaro's "A Floral Bouquet for Frida"
I had fallen behind in posting so this is my second post today and the last project inspired by Friday Kahlo. This project was led by Jane Lafazio. Jane did a wonderful drawing of flowers and then painted them with watercolor. Below is my version. I drew the flowers in ink, then used Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils to put the colors in my flowers. I then wet the pencil to make the effect of watercolor. I did the background in yellows oranges and blues. But when I wet it, it wasn't intense enough to make the flowers pop. So I started added layers of inks in the same colors. I also tried a stencil in a deep rose that was eventually mostly covered. I added more pink to the blossoms and made the branch darker. Then I splattered with white. I like the final result. I am really loving the ink because of the vibrant colors you can achieve.
