Painting Watercolor Snowdrop Flowers - First Time Using Masking Fluid!

This tutorial is from the book How to Paint Flowers and Plants by Janet Whittle.

The book is full of beautiful projects, and this snowdrop one was surprisingly easy! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Spoiler alert: here's how mine turned out!

These first few steps are recapped at the beginning of the video. I hadn't planned to make a video but it started turning out so beautiful!

Step one is the pencil sketch.

Step 2: Apply masking fluid to the flowers, leaves and stems.

Step 3: When the masking fluid is dry, Paint a watery mix of colours for the background. Be really free and have fun with this step!

Here's the rest of the tutorial in a video! Enjoy!

I hope you had fun with this turorial! I'd love to see what you made.
