My Watercolor Flower Journal

I love art and I love flowers so its exciting to combine both hobbies in my watercolor flower journal. Its not very big-that way I don’t feel overwhelmed and can keep it simple. I use a 4×6  drawing pad with a spiral binding, a Koi Water Color Pocket Field Sketch Box, a Sakura water brush and a fine point Sharpie pen. These all fit in a clear cosmetic bag I bought at Walmart along with some paper towel, a mechanical pencil and kneader eraser.Watercolor travel kit and watercolor travel journal-from myflowerjournal.com I have a bigger set of watercolors and lots of brushes, but I find myself going to this little watercolor kit because it is all in one place. I can take it with me anywhere or use it at my kitchen table. The water brush makes it easy to do watercolor on the go. The water is stored in the barrel handle and slowly feeds to the brush tip. It doesn’t work well for washes, but works great for quick watercolor sketches. Since I don’t use a lot of water I use this little drawing pad instead of watercolor paper.

You can probably guess this watercolor sketch was inspired by the photos I took at the Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival last year. I liked it so well I decided to try it in oil. I did this oil painting with a palette knife. It was my first time painting without a brush and I was quite pleased with texture  of the finished painting. I have done several more palette knife flower paintings that I will share in another post.Flower Art: Palette knife Tulips oil painting from the Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival-myflowerjournal.com
