I have used Strathmore watercolor paper, cold press, 140lb and Sakura koi colors.
I recently bought a set aquash brushes so I tried few of them for lily and lily pad. Background I have done with round brushes.
I started with pencil drawing and then I covered the window with masking tape so background wash color won’t go outside and lily-lily pad with masking fluid. Then I started coloring respectively.
It was little trouble with background but some how I call it finished 🙂 Would love to hear suggestions from you.
