Poppies & Ditch Flowers

$ 185  


There is nothing wrong with painting inside the lines. This painting is painted in a traditional watercolor manner including the use of masking fluid to protect the flowers when painting a loose, transparent background. The breakout of rectangles adds an additional design element. No previous watercolor experience is necessary. All levels of painters will complete a successful painting using the step by step directions. A line drawing is used so no drawing is required. The finished size is about 10” x 22”.

• Written instructions, line drawing and color photo
